Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.—Joshua 1:9
Imagine, you are on a journey to a new land. You’ve wandered in the desert for decades, your leader has died, and you have to fight bloody battles to claim the land you were promised. What would be the source of your strength, resilience, determination? We’ll find answers in this month’s study—the book of Joshua.
The people of Israel and their new leader, Joshua, could keep their courage because the Lord kept His promises. As we follow the Israelites’ quest to the Promised Land—the crossing of the Jordan River, the victories at Jericho and Ai, the deception of the Gibeonites and dividing of the Land—we’ll see that God was with them all the way. Through His faithfulness, their mission would be accomplished.
God has a calling and a destiny for each one of us. No matter the difficulty of the quest, we can be “strong and courageous” because our faithful Lord will fulfill His promises for us, as He did for Joshua. We pray the lessons from the life of Joshua will help you:
It’s a joy and a privilege to study the Bible with the Today in the Word family.
