Moses is dead. The children of Israel are finally poised to enter the promised land under the leadership of Joshua. How could Joshua fill Moses’ shoes? The same way Moses did… hearing the voice of the Lord and leading his people in obedience. Victory followed, but not without challenges. The Lord started by exhorting Joshua to “be strong and of good courage,” in the strength of the Lord. The book of Joshua is an epic trek of taking hold of the Lord’s promises in the way He designed for His chosen people… one battle at a time.
