The Death of Unbelief
by Ken Barnes
5/03/2017 / Christian Living
“So give me the hill country that the Lord promised me. You will remember that as scouts we found the descendants of Anak living there in great, walled towns. But if the Lord is with me, I will drive them out of the land, just as the Lord said.” (Joshua 14:12 NLT)
Caleb is eighty-five years old and still has not received his promised inheritance. He asked for the land of the descendants of Anak, the giants, who had put fear and unbelief in the hearts of all Israel, save Joshua and himself. The fulfillment of the promise of God would not be complete if he did not conquer this part of the land and unbelief would remain in Israel.
The hill country more than any other area was the place that caused the ten spies to give their bad report. All the spies except Joshua and Caleb said, “We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next, to them, we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought, too!” (Numbers 13:33 NLT) Joshua had already captured the city of Hebron (Joshua 10-36-37 NLT) except the mountainous area within it. It was considered unconquerable. Caleb could have taken the lowland and lived securely off of the fruits of someone else’s conquests, but he said, “give me the hill country” (v. 12). If Caleb could not take what God wanted to give him, he would take nothing at all. Why? He knew that what God had promised, he would do.
Has God promised you your hill country? Are you getting older or is there an immovable object in your way. If God has spoken, take the inheritance that God is giving you, and put to death unbelief. If God is with you, you cannot fail.
