The Heart of a Forty Year Old

After Joshua and Israel conquered the Land of Canaan, Caleb approached Joshua and said, “I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land, and I brought back word to him as it was in my heart” (Joshua 14:7).
Caleb remembered back forty-five years to that time, and he did report back to Moses what was in his heart, which was that the Lord would help Israel defeat the Canaanites. The heart of Caleb was the heart of God.
For that, God blessed Caleb.
Let us strive to pattern our hearts after the heart of God.
