Numbers 13:30 “Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, ‘We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we shall surely overcome it.’”
Stubbornness in people is generally not a good trait because it blocks people from considering other views and opening themselves up to outside influences. But in this case of Caleb’s speech before Israel as Moses looked on in approval, stubborn faith was the level of belief that was needed at this crucial time. Israel should have joined Caleb in his unyielding faith, insisting that God was with them and that He would overcome the obstacles they were facing. This is the perseverance that plows through problems and the guts that gets past giants! The driving motive is to take hold of everything that God has for us! Let’s dig our heels in with unmoved, stubborn faith!
