|SCRIPTURE: “No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.|
Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them” (Joshua 1:5-6 NIV)
Without God it can be frightening, with God it can be a great adventure. Just as God was with Joshua, He is with us as we face our new challenges. We may not conquer nations, but every day we face tough situations, difficult people, and temptations.
God promises, however, that He will never abandon us or fail to help us. By asking God to direct us we can conquer many life’s challenges.
Many people think that prosperity and success come from having power, influential personal contacts, and a relentless desire to get ahead. But the strategy for gaining prosperity that God taught Joshua goes against such criteria. He said that to succeed Joshua must;
1. Be strong and courageous because the task ahead would not be easy.
2. Obey God’s laws.
3. Constantly read and study the Book of instruction-God’s Word
To be successful, we must follow God’s words to Joshua. We may not succeed by the world’s standards, but we will be a success in God’s eyes-and His opinion is most important.
