Do not be intimidated by the giants in the Promised Land. Just like Caleb, be bold and ask for your mountain. You have waited long enough and have passed the tests of the wilderness. Do not shrink back in fear, but go forth in the power and strength of the Lord, for I AM with you! This is your time and season. Rejoice, for I have given them over into your hands! Yes, there are giants in the land, but you are well-equipped to take them down. Rely on Me, for surely you will need to seek My strategies for every battle. Do not rely on old methods. I am pouring out the New Wine and the old wineskins will not be able to contain it.
Advance and have no fear! Realize that giants are not only in the land but have also infiltrated the church. Have no fear! All will fall! Nothing can stop Me from accomplishing My purposes. I will have a Bride that is spotless, without blemish or wrinkle! Therefore, go boldly into the Promised Land and rescue My lost sons and daughters. What I have in store for you is more than you can even think, imagine, hope or dream for! This is the church's finest hour, so rise up and take the land! I AM with you!
Joshua 14:6-15 New Century Version (NCV)
6 One day some men from the tribe of Judah went to Joshua at Gilgal. Among them was Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite. He said to Joshua, “You remember what the Lord said at Kadesh Barnea when he was speaking to the prophet Moses about you and me. 7 Moses, the Lord’s servant, sent me to look at the land where we were going. I was forty years old then. When I came back, I told Moses what I thought about the land. 8 The other men who went with me frightened the people, but I fully believed the Lord would allow us to take the land. 9 So that day Moses promised me, ‘The land where you went will become your land, and your children will own it forever. I will give you that land because you fully believed in the Lord, my God.’
10 “Now then, the Lord has kept his promise. He has kept me alive for forty-five years from the time he said this to Moses during the time we all wandered in the desert. Now here I am, eighty-five years old. 11 I am still as strong today as I was the day Moses sent me out, and I am just as ready to fight now as I was then. 12 So give me the mountain country the Lord promised me that day long ago. Back then you heard that the Anakite people lived there and the cities were large and well protected. But now with the Lord helping me, I will force them out, just as the Lord said.”
13 Joshua blessed Caleb son of Jephunneh and gave him the city of Hebron as his own. 14 Hebron still belongs to the family of Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite because he had faith and obeyed the Lord, the God of Israel. 15 (In the past it was called Kiriath Arba, named for Arba, the greatest man among the Anakites.) After this there was peace in the land.
