God Commissions Joshua






Scripture Read all of Joshua Chapter one

Underline these words: “Be strong and courageous because you will lead these people to inherit the land I promised them.” Joshua 1:6

Joshua had traveled with the grumbling Israelites, and was aware of the job he was assuming; so he knew he’d need to be strong and courageous. But can you imagine a multitude of people wandering in a wilderness forty years. Perhaps we would have grumbled, also.

I’m aware one of my sins is complaining and sometimes wonder if God is allowing my adversities to help me overcome complaining. If so, Lord, help me not to be such a slow learner. Because I really want some more normal days if Your will.

Prayer: Father in heaven, thank You for the blessings of today, and forgive my complaining I pray, I thank You and pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
