Joshua Installed as Leader

After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide:“Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan Riverinto the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. No one will be able to stand 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 ancestors to give them.

“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

10 So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: 11 “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’”

12 But to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, 13 “Remember the command that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you after he said, ‘The Lord your God will give you rest by giving you this land.’ 14 Your wives, your children and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, ready for battle, must cross over ahead of your fellow Israelites. You are to help them 15 until the Lord gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land the Lord your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the Lord gave you east of the Jordan toward the sunrise.”

16 Then they answered Joshua, “Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. 17 Just as we fully obeyed Moses, so we will obey you. Only may the Lord your God be with you as he was with Moses. 18 Whoever rebels against your word and does not obey it, whatever you may command them, will be put to death. Only be strong and courageous!”

  • amen! Be obedient .Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go

    Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

     Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you ! Thank You,Lord ! I love you LORD , for the promises of your word.

  • God said for us to be strong and courageous. He promised he would be with us whereever we go. Joshua did what God told him to do and the people did what Joshua told them to do ....great Faith!

  • Years of submission, led to years of great respect and authority.  So often people wavier in their convictions and they try to move ahead of their season.  Moses and Joshua is a perfect example of mentoring/discipleship.  God chose both of them to be examples to us about being faithful, being honest, and being willing.  Those qualities caused them both to  be great leaders.  Moses led them out of captivity and Joshua led into the promise.  What mantles they wore. 

  • JOSHUA WAS CHOSEN BY GOD, HE WAS OBEDIENT AND FOLLOWED INSTRUCTION.. GOD TOLD HIM HE WILL GIVE HIM EVERY PLACE HE SET HIS FOOT,AS HE PROMISED MOSES, THESE PROMISES APPLY TO US AS WELL, WE HAVE TO B OBEDIENT TOTHE LORD STEP BY STEP  AND BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS, MAKING SURE NOT TO TURN TO THE LEFT R RIGHT. STAY FAITHFUL AND FOCUSED AND DO NOT B AFRAID. WE TO MUST GO IN AND TAKE POSSESSION OF THE LAND THE LORD R GOD IS GIVING US FOR R OWN,REMEMBERING TO KEEP THE WORD ON R LIPS..NO DOUBT ONLY B STRONG AND COURAGEOUS

  • God gave Joshua instructions to obey the law that Moses has given you; do not turn to the right or the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. These same rules apply to us and if we just stay the course not looking at the storm surrounding us or the things that distract us, keep our eyes focused on the Lord we can obtain and have the same success. 

  • We must be " strong and courageous" as we enter into our new land!  Staying obedient to the Lord and focused on Him, not looking to the left or the right, but only forward as we enter into the  promised land! Amen

  • We are getting ready to cross over. It has begun ..... lord I pray for my obedience and courageous spirit. I take back everything the devil stole. Im going in with a fight. Im taking it back. Im possessing that which the Lord gives me in jesus name. And these words will NOT fall to the ground. Amen
  • God has given us power and authority to take back everything the devil stole from us, this is our season for favor, we will be strong we will have courage for the Lord thy God is with us.

  • Yes Lord Strong and Courageous Today!

  • When God installs you no man can uninstall you! God sets us up to be finishers of what has already had established! God sets the order and all you have to do is carry out the plan that is laid before you.

    If we would listen, God speaks

    If we follow, God will lead

    If we obey, God will reward

    If we forgive, God will restore

    If we step out, God will step in

    All God needs is a willing and obedient vessel!
