Walking In Victory Bible Study Journal
Have you ever realized how easy is to fall into the “what ifs” and give into fear instead of trusting God?
Instead of living an abundant life, we struggle to survive.
We have an inheritance in Christ that nobody can take away from us, but we don’t always live like it. Why? Because we don´t realize that we are fighting this battle named “life” from a position of victory.
The book of Joshua teaches us to remember the promises God has given us and to trust God in everything He gives us to do. Joshua shows us how to walk in victory.
Read Full Summary
Walking in victory relies on God´s promises but it´s not passive. It requires action from us to believe those promises and live in them every day. Israel owned the land because of God’s gracious covenant with Abraham (Genesis 12:1–5), but their enjoyment of the land depended on their faithful obedience to God.
The same God who was with Joshua and the Israelites is with us today. He has given us the same promises and He wants us to claim the inheritance He has already given us. We pray this study helps you start walking in victory!

Before Moses died, he chose Joshua to be the next leader of the Israelites. After wandering in the wilderness for 40 years, Joshua and his people camped to the East of the Jordan River before heading into the Promised Land. God told Joshua that he would take over the land that He promised Abraham, and encouraged Joshua to be strong and courageous because He would be with him.
The battle was going to be hard; there were indeed mighty nations dwelling in the land of Canaan. There were also races of giants and powerful armies, yet the Israelites were determined to conquer the land.
Do you know the best part of the story? God had already given them the victory! The land belonged to them, but they had to conquer it and claim it as their God-given inheritance.
Joshua was a brave warrior and a great leader. He trusted God with all his heart and that´s what God wants from you, too.
We pray this study in the book of Joshua encourages you to obey God and walk in victory!
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...read more
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....read more
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...read more

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...read more
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...read more
