At His Word
Today's reading: Joshua 1:10-18
After receiving the charge to be strong and courageous, Joshua takes God at His word. He embraces his new role as the leader of the Israelites, and doesn't waste any time in moving forward. Upon hearing from God, Joshua calls the officers of Israel together and informs and instructs them about moving forward to take possession of the land across the Jordan. He then commands the tribes that have already received land to assist in this mission. With his eyes set on God, Joshua was confident and authoritative and Israel received and adopted him as their leader.
Is it your tendency to take God at His Word? What situation or circumstance do you need to trust God with today? What does Joshua's command to the tribes of Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh show us about family helping family, and working together as a team with other followers of Christ? Tami
