“As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.”
Waiting can take a toll on us.
Usually the longer we wait, the more agitated our flesh becomes.
Caleb had waited 45 years to receive what he was promised, yet his strength remained. He was as strong at 85 as he was when he was 40.
“As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me…”
His strength never failed because he never trusted in his own strength.
“…as my strength was then, even so is my strength now…”
This was the result of Caleb wholly following the Lord, even through the wilderness. Perhaps his testimony of relying on the Lord’s strength encouraged those who came behind him.
2 Corinthians 12:8-9
“For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Caleb and Paul both realized that it was not their strength that enabled them, it was the Lord. They yielded themselves to His strength.
It is in our times of weakness that the strength of the Lord is shown.
Without Him, we can do nothing; yet through Him we can do all things.
Allow Him to strengthen you today.
