Good morning, here is your dose of inspiration for the week.
After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, it came to pass that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying: 2 “Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel. Joshua 1:1-2
It can be very intimidating when God calls our name for a task that seems large. God called Joshua to lead the children of Israel over the Jordan River into the land He was giving them now that Moses was dead. Joshua was stepping into the shoes of a great leader. Certainly, God had prepared and equipped Joshua for the new journey he was about to embark on.
Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. Joshua 1:3
New journeys are awaiting many of us. We may be asking ourselves “am I ready to step out and step into the new place the Lord is directing me?” The only way to know is to yield and be obedient to the Lord’s call. The Lord may not always give you full details but yielding to His voice in obedience can open doors to new possibilities for our lives.
No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Joshua 1:5
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.” Joshua 1:9
The Lord is beckoning us to take the next step toward our purpose in this life. It’s never too late and you’re never too old. Your name is assigned to a plan He has designed for you! When God calls, will you listen and respond? He will be with you wherever you go.
Prayer: Lord thank you that you see me as I am. You know my doubts and fears, but I know you have called me for such a time as this. In this season I asked that you direct my steps as I partner with you in the work you’re calling and directing me to impact your kingdom. In Jesus Name~Amen! Have a blessed week.
