We all have promises from God.
We need to go and redeem that promise and live out the promises that God has given us.
Joshua is a story of conquest and fulfilling promises.
God promises Abraham the land of Canaan, it was 650 years later that Israel took the land of Canaan.
Will you take the land God has given to you?
Take up the Challenge
Old things have passed away but NOW arise.
There may be reason why we don’t take up the challenge,
There may be difficulties
We don’t know what is to come.
But NOW is the time to take up the challenge
God is committed to you
Joshua accepted the challenge, he knew God’s promise to him.
There is a powerful presence
The victory is yours in Christ Jesus
There is a personal presence
God is there for you in every situation
There is a permanent presence
God will never leave you or forsake you
Be Obedient to God’d commandments
Joshua’s victory is based on his obedience to God’s word
We are called to obey ALL of the word of God
Meditate on the word day and night
Courage, Courage, Courage
It take courage to take up the challenge.
You will need courage.
Courage is not the absence of fear but it is pushing through despite the fear.
Nothing significant happens without courage.
