I promise you what I promised Moses: ‘Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you— from the Negev wilderness in the south to the Lebanon mountains in the north, from the Euphrates River in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west, including all the land of the Hittites.’ No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you.
Joshua 1:3-5 NLT
The importance of knowing the promises of God!
As Joshua is starting his career as the leader of the nation, God gives him a promise— “Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you.” And the greatest promise of all— “I will be with you as I was with Moses.”
God was giving Joshua the promise of destiny. The land in front of you is yours. “No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live.”
I believe God has a destiny for every believer. As followers of Christ, there is within each of us land to conquer. It may be a business to start, a social issue to overcome, a difference to make in the lives of others, or something totally different. But God created you with a destiny.
And God wants you to know that He will be with you just like He was with Moses and Joshua. The same God is working today to complete His work in and through those who are willing to follow and obey His plan.
It is time to grab your destiny and hold on to the promises of God. Stop living below your destiny. Start stretching yourself beyond where you are and allow God to work in and through you. It is time to go conquer some land.
Holy Spirit, I must have Your presence. I cannot accomplish what You are putting in my heart by myself. I need You living in and through me.
