I just want to encourage you with something today. As I read these verses, my heart felt that others need this too. You see here God is speaking to Joshua. Moses has died and God is telling Joshua the plan has not changed. Get going. Keep moving on with the plan God has for the people. He tells Joshua the anointing will be there, God will be by his side, now lead those people into their inheritance.
I see God telling us all in this hour….THE PLAN HASN’T CHANGED….Get going! Do you see? Even though things had died, failed or not worked out the way we thought God is not finished. He did not change His mind about you. Listen, even though that job did not work out. Even though your marriage failed, the finances are not what you need them to be, whatever your circumstance is God is saying “Get going.” He still has a plan for you. Nothing has changed there are still promises for you to inherit and He still has a plan, a call, an anointing on your life. Even though things are not what they used to be He wants you to carry on with the plan He has for you.
Just like Moses, whatever has tried to stand against you will fall. He is with you and will not leave you, quit or give up on you. Strength! Courage! “You are going to inherit all that I have promised to you.” Give it everything you have, heart and soul. He says meditate on the word day and night and keep it before you and you will get where you are going. Do not be discourage. He is with you every step of the way.
In our lives, circumstances change and we lose the focus that we were created out of a dream in the heart of God and birthed with a purpose to walk out. He did not set you up to fail. You were born out of victory and are a champion on a mission. I do not care what things used to be. Stop looking back and turn your eyes to God because what lies ahead of you is greater, so, so much greater than anything you lost or left behind.
Joshua 1: 1-9 The Message (MSG) After the death of Moses the servant of GOD, GOD spoke to Joshua, Moses’ assistant:
“Moses, my servant is dead. Get going. Cross this Jordan River, you and all the people. Cross to the country I’m giving to the People of Israel. I’m giving you every square inch of the land you set your foot on—just as I promised Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon east to the Great River, the Euphrates River—all the Hittite country—and then west to the Great Sea. It’s all yours. All your life, no one will be able to hold out against you. In the same way I was with Moses, I’ll be with you. I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you. Strength! Courage! You are going to lead this people to inherit the land that I promised to give their ancestors. Give it everything you have, heart and soul. Make sure you carry out The Revelation that Moses commanded you, every bit of it. Don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get to where you’re going. And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed. Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. GOD, your God, is with you every step you take.”
