Silencing Fear

Numbers 13:30 “Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, ‘We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.'” (NIV)*

Let me be Caleb

Ready to take a stand

Voice of fear, silence

Believing God can.


Let me be Caleb

Before enemy, bold

Knowing God is able

His purpose, unfold.


Let me be Caleb

Walking forward in faith

Unabashed belief

Milk and honey, await.


poem by Patty Perkins


Check-out Numbers 13:1-33 in today’s One Year Bible reading, to see Caleb’s faith amidst voices of fear.
