Joshua, Caleb, and the Spies

In this lesson, we look at the account of Israel spying out and then refusing to enter the promised land of Canaan. While most of Israel doubted God and refused to obey God, a faithful remnant that included Joshua and Caleb stood strong and urged obedience. This passage has much to teach believers about trusting God’s Word over fleshly feelings or analysis; when we simply believe God, we not only avoid God’s judgment/chastening, but we do not miss out on God’s great blessings.
