Fear the Lord Your God
Joshua 3:1-17

God wants us to activate our faith at the very moment He commands us to act. Like Joshua and the Hebrew Nation, taking the first step in believing God can be exciting and frightening at the same time.

Truth 1. (v. 1-6) Joshua initiated God’s plan with a call to holiness
  • Joshua believed God.
  • Joshua obeyed God.
  • Joshua began his journey with God.

Galatians 5 | James 1

Truth 2. (v. 7,8) God gave Joshua assurance that He would be with him.
  • God encouraged Joshua’s heart by speaking directly to him.
  • God promised to exalt Joshua before God’s people.
  • God provided Joshua exact details of His assignment.
Truth 3. (v. 9-17) God’s people exercised their faith and crossed the Jordan.
  • Once God’s people crossed Jordan, there was no turning back.
  • Crossing Jordan meant the people would have to fight the battle of God.
  • The entire Hebrew Nation made a complete surrender to God.

God is faithful.
Are you faithful to God?
Have you obeyed Him in your life?
Do you know Jesus Chrsit as your Savior and Lord?
Are you living a life which honors God?
Have you surrendered your life to God?

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:37-39
