Joshua 1:16-18 – With God

Today’s readings: Deut 34:1‐12; Josh 1:1‐2:24, Luke 13:22‐14:6, Ps 79:1‐13, Prov 12:26

Joshua 1:16 (The people of Israel) answered Joshua, “All that you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. 17 Just as we obeyed Moses in all things, so we will obey you. Only may the Lord your God be with you, as he was with Moses! 18 Whoever rebels against your commandment and disobeys your words, whatever you command him, shall be put to death. Only be strong and courageous.”

Observations:  Israel’s two desires for Joshua’s leadership

1.      That God would be with him (v17)

2.      That he would be strong and courageous (v18)

Apply:  As I lead, I must walk with God and act with strength and courage.

Do you have an example of this type of leader in your life?
