Joshua: Seizing the Promises of God
May 5, 2019
We continue our series walking through the book of Joshua called, “Seizing the Promises of God.” This sermon we are looking at Joshua 1:10-18 with a message titled, “Fulfilling the Purposes of God.” Take time to read through all of Joshua Chapter 1 again while focusing on verses 10-18. The people of Israel would have been waiting their whole lives for this moment. What emotions do you think they were experiencing when Joshua’s men gave the orders to begin preparations? Read Numbers 32 to understand why the Reubenites, the Gadites, and half-tribe of Manasseh made their home east of the Jordan. What is surprising about the people’s response in Joshua 1:16-18? Numbers 14:36-38 gives a summary of how the previous generation responded to the same task. Take time this week to reflect on the implications of this first chapter of Joshua for your life.
