In all of Israel, which comes to over a million people, how many do you supposed had the faith to follow God's plan and enter the Promised Land? It has always boggled my mind that there were only TWO of all those people! Only Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh were full of faith in God's ability to do what He had promised. They gave a rousing speech that reminds me of the movie Braveheart, when William Wallace (Mel Gibson) said, "They may take our lives, but they can't take our FREEDOM!"  The difference is that Wallace's speech worked, but Joshua and Caleb's did not.

God hands out a punishment that the people do not like at all.  Then they try and attack in their own power and are utterly defeated.  Only faith works, not the efforts of our own human minds and hands.
