Caleb was Correct

"Caleb stilled the people… and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.  But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we" (Numbers 13:30,31).  "There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof... shall flourish like grass of the earth" (Psalm 72:16).  "Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling… to the only wise God our Savior be glory" (Jude 1:24,25). 

The Lord had given His command
And surely made His purpose clear
Pertaining to the promised land;
There was, therefore, no cause to fear. 

So Caleb's counsel then was right,
Though some contended he was wrong,
For he was trusting in God's might
To overcome those who were strong. 

The foes of Christ may loudly scorn
The true disciples in His hand,
Yet they shall flourish like the corn
Of Gospel truth in every land.   

O Lord, as Caleb was correct
To trust in You and heed Your calling,
We look to You to now direct
And likewise keep our feet from falling.
