Against the Crowd

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: Fear is the great enemy of fully following God. The spies quaked when they saw the giants in the land. Little did they know that the real giant was their fear. Caleb was different; he stood against the popular thought of terror. He trembled before God, not man, and spoke a word of faith. Even at eighty-five years of age, his trust in God did not abate, giving him unusual strength. Today, be like Caleb, rather than like the crowd. “My brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt with fear; but I followed the Lord my God fully” (Joshua 14:8).
