  1. Give Me This Hill Country Joshua 14:12

  2. Joshua 14:12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said

  3. Shammua, Shaphat, Igal, Palti, Gaddiel, Gaddi, Ammiel, Sethur, Nahbi, and Geuel. Do you recognize these names? Their traveling companions were Caleb and Joshua!

  4. 1. Caleb – one of the twelve who spied out the Promised Land Joshua and caleb brought back a true report of the prosperity of the land

  5. Num. 13:23 And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.

  6. Nu. 13:26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land

  7. The ten spies brought back an evil report– they saw the hindrances instead of the Lord’s help They saw the problem instead of the solution

  8. Num. 13:32-33 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof;

  9. and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

  10. Caleb’s attitude was much different Nu. 13:30 “And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.”

  11. Num. 14:24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

  12. Num. 14:30 Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

  13. Caleb had a great zeal for the Lord – he wanted to be up and doing

  14. 1 Cor. 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

  15. He was a man of great faith Num. 14:9 “Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.”

  16. “Caleb never considered whether or not to do what God commanded; he only considered what was the best way to obey the Lord!”

  17. He was a man of great courage He knew the giants were in the land but he knew the Lord was with Israel He remained faithful when others were disobedient

  18. 2. Caleb’s real test came in his old age Joshua 14:10-11 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old.

  19. 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.

  20. When the land was being divided he asked for the most difficult area to conquer He was a full 20 years older than any man there except Joshua!

  21. Moses had promised him a certain area – the very place in the hill country where they had seen the giants

  22. Num. 14:24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

  23. Joshua 14:12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.

  24. 3. The secret of his success A. He depended upon the Lord for help Joshua 14:10

  25. Josh. 14:10 “And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old.”

  26. B. He wholly followed the Lord There is no other way to follow the Lord Partial obedience is disobedience

  27. Mt. 6:24 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

  28. Js. 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

  29. Lk. 9:59-60 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

  30. “Wholly follow the Lord” = means to follow Him in all relationships of life – home, business, recreation etc.

  31. Lk. 1:5-6 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

  32. 2 Tim. 4:6-8 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

  33. C. He always put the Lord first He proved this when he came back from spying out the land He gave up the city of Hebron to be used as a city of refuge

  34. Mt. 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
