00623 - Books of the Bible : Joshua

The Book of Joshua narrates the story of Israel's conquest of Canaan, the Promised Land, under Joshua's leadership following Moses's death. This historical account transitions from the wilderness wanderings to the establishment of Israel in Canaan, signifying a fulfilment of God's promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 

Joshua 1:9 (NKJV) speaks of faith: "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." 

The Book of Joshua teaches us about God's faithfulness to His promises and the importance of obedience and courage. Joshua shows unwavering trust in God even in daunting circumstances; we are inspired to exercise our faith in God's plan. The narrative demonstrates that overcoming obstacles is possible with faith, perseverance, and God's guidance, providing a blueprint for building a strong, resilient confidence capable of navigating life's battles.


Even when you feel down, stir your faith in God.


Thank You for Your word, Lord, to encourage me and build my faith. Amen.
