Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Then the children of Judah came to Joshua in Gilgal. And Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him: “You know the word which the Lord said to Moses the man of God concerning you and me in Kadesh Barnea.” – Josh. 14:6
This is a picture of what your life in prayer should look like. Caleb had received a word from the Lord. All of Hebron would be his! So when it came time to divide up his inheritance, Caleb reminded Joshua – God’s representative – of God’s word.
But you don’t need a representative any more. Jesus is your Advocate (1 Jn. 2:1)! If your life doesn’t look like the promise: remind God. Bring His word back to Him. Did you know God doesn’t mind when you remind Him of His promises? In fact, He encourages it:
Put Me in remembrance;
Let us contend together… – Isa. 43:26
If you would just bring His word back to Him in prayer – if you would just remind Him of His promise – everything He has spoken would come to pass.
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. – Isa. 55:11
Make God’s word return to Him. Bring it back to Him in prayer! And He will do the rest.
Father, make me bold in my prayers. You have promised me some amazing things! And I will not rest until every single one of them comes to pass, in Jesus’ name.
