NUM 14:24
But My servant Caleb, because he  .  .  .  hath followed Me fully, him will I bring into the land.
Num. 14:24
This is quite a commendation, isn’t it? Caleb had followed the Lord fully. He had given all his heart to the Lord and had been faithful to the Lord all his life. Had Caleb had an easy life? Probably not. He had to travel through the wilderness for 40 years like all his peers. But the difference was that Caleb got to enter Canaan. His peers, who left Egypt the same time, didn’t (except for Joshua). The reward was a long time coming - but it came. And Caleb got to see the promised land. He had been faithful. He faithfulness was rewarded.
