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!”

    God is giving us every place where our feet tread, God has spoken and it is so... increased in every area. I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.

  • he wants us to stay strong and pray and always meditate on his word daily because we need it on our everyday walk with him 

  • Amen.

  • Only be strong and courageous I receive those words and they will not fall to the ground in Jesus name. Amen
  • We have to know that it is our turn,  It's time for us to step up, it's time for us to be strong and be very courageous.  To hear and obey, to respond with a Yes Lord, your way, will and word, i'll do.   

  • the key is obedience yes and we must stand and fight God tells us everyday be strong and be encouraged we will eat good of the land thank you Jesus
  • God us in this chapter to be strong and courageous and go in and posses the land that he said they could have and obedience to what he told them to do and that he would be with them

  • Lord appoint me that you may take charge over what  you have me to have. Give me the authority to conquer the enemy in the land you shall place me.

  • We must follow the strict instructions that have been given to us by the Lord. To do anything contrary to that would mean you are operating in rebellion and so actions of disobedience. We must continue to move forward and not look back to what we left in Our past that caused us to fall away from God.
  • True leaders are called by God just as Joshua was. Joshua watched, and observed how God used his servant Moses and Joshua understood the time and season was now, because the servant of the Lord was dead.joshua had already been preparing his self to take over the ministry and to lead the people into the Promised Land. I say all that to say that, everything that you go through and experience it's a process to prepare you for your time and season.
