How to stay young at heart


Joshua 14:11 (ESV): 11 I am still as strong today as I was in the day that Moses sent me; my strength now is as my strength was then, for war and for going and coming.


These are the words of Caleb at 85 years of age, after 7 years of the conquest of Canaan and 40 years of wandering in the wilderness with the faithless Israelites.

Caleb had determined to wholly follow the Lord, and so God promised to give him an inheritance in Canaan. And despite his age, Caleb was emotionally, mentally and physically fit to continue serving God.


The blessed life is the one wholly devoted to the Lord. We can rest assured that if we are faithful to Christ, he will be more than faithful to us.


Heavenly Father, give me the heart and mind of Caleb, to live fully surrendered to you, not only in my younger years but throughout my life, spending myself freely for you. Amen.
