Joshua 1:1-9 MSG; “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.”
What is holding you back from stepping in to cross your river? What part of “I’ll be with you” aren’t you getting? If God you the assignment to do something, He will strengthen you to do it. He’s just that awesome. Just that powerful. Just that faithful. Joshua was in his 80’s when God gave him this word. What’s your excuse? Age? Social status? Money? None of that is a prerequisite for doing Gods will because who he calls, he also equips.
You make the first move, God will do the rest.
We are remnant!
