Joshua

Are you now living a life similar to Joshua’s first hours of his calling to lead his people into the holy land?

Joshua a young man just watched his Rabbi and prophet Moses saying goodbye, then even more Moses just left him with thousands of Israelite who traveled hundreds of miles and lived for 40 years in the wilderness preparing to enter the promised land, and become holy people and God’s army, before entering the Holy land ready for God’s war.

Just imagine that you are literally there right now on the east bank of the Jordan river watching this chaos, do a 360 panoramic view, what you see is what the inexperience Joshua saw, he was filled with fear, doubts and not knowing what to do, still had to protect, lead, supply and obey the commands of God to move forward, be courageous and strong enough to go to war and fight..Then the Lord used this scripture to remind him and make him laser focused on (who God is, the mission ahead and who he is in the order of the relationship).

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10, ESV).

How often we become surrounded with the same chaos, with too many unknowns and filled with fears. But yet, God keeps reminding us to be like Joshua not Jonah..

Be Whole, Be Strong and Courageous 

Men!!!
“Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but “YOU” shall be the miracle.” Phillips Brooks – US Episcopal bishop (1835 – 1893)  

Be whole, be strong & courageous for He carried the cross in complete agony, but voluntary died in our behalf. “Nothing” – Absolutely Nothing, is compared to you God. Who always  collects our broken pieces and make us whole once again, who heals our bleeding hearts and cleanse them to make them white as snow once again.

Carry your cross like Jesus did, Be Glories and victories, humble men of honor – men of God like a child honoring his own Father through worshiping, continually without ceasing raising and praising His Holy name by (Spirit & Truth).

For we are so privileged to have been created by Him and for Him; For through this knowledge comes responsibilities and accountability; to live a life sharing the words and fighting the wars for the benefit and the welfare of His upcoming Kingdom-ship..  

How deeply more wonderful can it be, how more humbling will it feel to believe that we are created to be His Sons and daughters and when we love Him supremely, have faith, trust and complete obedience we make our heavenly Father smile and these acts do delight Him so much, even when “We Feel”  He is a million mile away!

Let no one but God defiles you or shortchange you from knowing the true promises in God’s inspired and breathed words (The Holy Bible) by editing and sugarcoating these inspired words to inrich their earthly ministery; rather study, meditate, be inspired and get transformed by the powers of the Holiness of All these breathed words. Let no daylight end without declaring from all of your heart, all of your soul, mind and strength your pure love to Him and others specially he family members of His Faith.

Be Joshua 1:9 
(God repeatedly commanded Joshua by saying ) “Have I not COMMANDED YOU? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

“Do not bring the Word of God down to the level of your ministry (whatever it is), rather be strong and courageous to bring your ministry up to God’s inspired words, which is what we are called to do and what honors and pleases the Father.” – Pastor Crawford Loritts The call to courage
