Be Strong to Keep God´s Word

Be Strong to Keep God´s Word

Joshua’s story is coming to an end. As he gathers Israel’s leaders, he shares the same words with them that God gave him at the beginning of his leadership: Be strong and courageous, and continue to obey God (Joshua 1:6-9 and 23:6). When they do those things, God will...

God Keeps His Promises

God Keeps His Promises

Think back with me to the time when the people of God were slaves in Egypt. They were oppressed, weak, and helpless but God promised that He would rescue them and give them land of their own. So, He raised up leaders like Moses and Aaron and in miraculous and...

Promised Provision

Promised Provision

My three-year-old grandson came to live with us this past spring, and we’ve done our best to ensure he feels safe and secure inside the four walls of our home. We’ve established a daily routine, and he knows what to expect. When Grandma promises a snack after nap...

Spiritual Slack

Spiritual Slack

Joshua and the people of Israel are in the land God promised to give them. All the promises and commands God had given them can be reduced to this instruction – be brave and diligent in claiming the land I´ve already given you. That´s all they had to do. They had to...

Give Me That Mountain

Give Me That Mountain

I know a "Caleb" type man. He is a WWII 94-year-old war veteran and lives down the road from me. I have watched him "run" down my street for ten years now. When I first moved into my house, he was still running at a pretty fast pace for a man his age. These past few...

Borderline Believers

Borderline Believers

To understand why Reuben, Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh had made a bad decision when they asked to remain at the East side of the Jordan, we need to read Numbers 32. In that chapter, we read that they had a great number of livestock. When they saw the land of...

God Fights for You

God Fights for You

"They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you," declares the Lord, "to deliver you." Jeremiah 1:19 Joshua is as much a book about spiritual battles as it is about physical ones. Maybe we haven't faced five physical kingdoms...

Two Lessons from Joshua 9

Two Lessons from Joshua 9

Have you ever felt like the whole world was stacked against you? Maybe even today it seems like everywhere you look, competition... giants... roadblocks... enemies... surround you. In Joshua 9, this is the case for the Israelites. They've officially entered the...

Battling Deception

Battling Deception

Today's story is a story of deception. Joshua and the people of Israel had conquered city after city. The Canaanites were afraid of their powerful God. The Gibeonites didn´t want to fight against Israel and they made a plan to deceive them and force a peace covenant....

God Give Us Victory

God Give Us Victory

I'm not one of those people who reads the last page first, and I don't want you to tell me how the story ends. That approach works fine for fairy tales and fiction, but as a Christian, I am so thankful to know that God has already foretold the ending. Spoiler alert:...

True Repentance

True Repentance

Repentance is such a big component of the Christian life. Both John the Baptist’s and Jesus' first messages were about repentance. It might seem strange to repent of our sins if Jesus already paid for them, but because we continue to sin, and God calls us to turn away...

All Sin Has Consequences

All Sin Has Consequences

All of the choices we make in life, from big to small, bring with them consequences. One small decision made thoughtlessly in a moment can destroy a family or save someone’s life. Though the choice we make may be a relatively small one, it can have great consequences....

Fighting From Victory, Not For Victory

Fighting From Victory, Not For Victory

Before the battle had even begun, God told Joshua HE had delivered Jericho into Joshua’s hands. I know we don’t really like to talk about battles or wars anymore. The idea of everyone “co-existing” together sounds nice. Driving around town or on our highways, many of...

(Week 2) God’s Mighty Hand in Every Season

The older I get, the more I can look back and see God's hand in every season. Some seasons are slow and monotonous. I remember the early years of motherhood. "The days are long, but the years are short," they said. Those years were definitely packed full of simple...

Learn to Remember

Learn to Remember

We value the experiences we have with loved ones and therefore cherish the memories. So we take pictures, we keep diaries, and we make videos because we don’t want to forget the people or experiences.    Years ago, my husband and I started a prayer journal. We would...

Living Like an Overcomer

Living Like an Overcomer

I was 23 years old in the Spring of 1997. I had big hair... and bangs. Oh dear. Lots of bangs. And big dreams. I had lots of those too. College graduation was on the horizon and wedding plans were in the mix, and if there was ever a time I looked at the world through...

The Secret To Success

The Secret To Success

Joshua had some pretty big shoes to fill with the passing of Moses. The pressure to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land was enough to keep anyone up at night. Though the nation was by most standards considered small, Joshua now found himself in charge of...

Walking In Victory- Introduction

Some of us live our lives fearing the future. We live in the “what ifs” instead of focusing on the things God has already given us. We have an inheritance in Christ that nobody can take away from us. We have been promised an abundant life but we´re living on crumbs....

Here We Are

Here We Are

"Well, here we are . . ." Dave Garroway, the original host of NBC's Today show, opened the very first airing with these words on January 14, 1952. They were originally spoken with anxious anticipation of good things to come, but when I read or listen to the news...

God’s Will For Your Life

"What is God's will for my life?" That has been a question I've asked myself over and over again, especially when I was younger and thinking about what college I should go to, what job I should pursue, who I should marry and where I should live. And if I'm honest, I...

The prophet Micah certainly lived in wicked times! The people of Israel sinned against God over and over again. They didn't want to live as God had commanded them to live, but like the other nations around them. They worshiped idols and disrespected the law God had...
