Precarious (Joshua 10:1-43)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “precarious.” Can you imagine being in Joshua’s position when God called him to lead the Israelites into the next chapter of history? The peeps just lost the only leader they had for the last 40 years; and Joshua was to follow that act! The Israelites still had not reached the Promised Land and in front of them was a huge river and bunch of cities with walls. Not a good situation. But Joshua stepped up and took on that crazy task…

“Joshua said to them, 'Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the LORD will do to all the enemies you are going to fight.'”
~Josh. 10:25

Here’s my question: are you continually moving forward during both the good and bad times of your life? Sometimes we want to slow down because we get overwhelmed. All of us have been in a precarious situation or two, as Joshua faced. My prayer is that when you come across those situations you are reminded of the times God has pulled you through to victory. God will give you favor… hit this new year running hard and looking toward the Creator!

Praying for you,
