August 5 – Joshua 15

Drive Them Out

Joshua 15

Text: And Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak, Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the descendants of Anak.

Joshua 15:14

Learn and Apply:

The sons of Anak were giants who dwelt in fortified cities. In fact, when Moses sent the people to spy out the land of Canaan, they came back with the report that the sons of Anak , who were descendants of the giants, dwelt there; and that the spies were like grasshoppers in their sight (Numbers 13:33). Only Caleb and Joshua came back with a good report. Therefore, it is no surprise that Joshua gave him the land of Hebron to possess.

One would think that giving him the land as an inheritance meant that there was no battle to be fought, when indeed there was great battle – battle with the sons of Anak, descendants of giants. We however have good news in the end. Caleb drove them out. He didn’t destroy them completely, but he pushed them away from his inheritance. He possessed his possession. And not even the giants could stop him from entering what was allocated him.

In the same vein, many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him from them all. If we can face those giants that trouble us in faith, we will drive them out of our lives and possessions in Jesus name.

The God of Caleb will grant us victory!

Pray: Thank you Father for you are the God who grants us victory over every situation; help us to face the giants in our lives and grant us victory over them in Jesus name.
