Caleb had faith when everyone else feared. Now, when he can reap the rewards of faith, instead of choosing a charming seaside villa, he looks to the hills to fight the giants.
To see a life of faith as a way to smooth sailing misses the point of faith. God gives, and we grow, in faith to take tough territory and to fight giants.
And so Caleb did, and conquered. And so can we. Take heart in trials and persevere, dear friends. Your faith is growing and is given for just such opportunities.
