Nunsy said tonight that the next time she is preaching she will be coming from Joshua, and that made me head straight to that book for the DIG tonight.
What the Lord says to Joshua as he embarked on his ministry, into leadership, He is saying to us today.
And I find that truth extremely encouraging.
He promises to be with us on the mission He has tasked us with (Joshua 1 v 5).
He promises that He will not fail us (Joshua 1 v 5).
He promises us that if we follow His guidance we will prosper in whatever we do (Joshua 1 v 7).
He promises that if we focus on His Word and speak out His Word we will have good success (Joshua 1 v 8).
He promises that with His presence we can live without fear (Joshua 1 v 9).
Now there’s a great model for anything that we do in life, be it ministry, school, work, indeed any part of life.
Follow the Lord’s guidance through His Word and through your personal relationship with Jesus and you cannot go wrong.
You cannot fail to succeed and prosper if you go with His guidance rather than with your on understanding.
This is a truth confirmed in Proverbs (Proverbs 3 v 5 and 6).
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the promises that you gave to Joshua, and thank you that you have also given them to me”.
Joshua 1 v 9…..Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest
