Joshua crossing the Jordan

riverAll God had told Joshua and Israel was that they were to follow the Ark of the Covenant, He hadn’t revealed the details his plan to lead them out of the wilderness and into the promised land.

Be strong and courageous

DSC_2003Dan’s message today was based on Joshua 1 – God told Joshua to be strong and courageous, but we know that this was not physical strength being referred to, but about the Spirit. Israel could have been discouraged because Moses had died, but God’s plan was still in effect, and Joshua was now taking over the role of leader. They were heading into a land inhabited by giants, but with God’s Spirit on their side, they could be strong and courageous in the face of risk and threats. The same is true for us today.
