TITLE: MOVE INTO YOUR PROMISED LAND
Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
There comes a time when the old order fades away and new a order is introduced to continue the purpose of God. After the death of Moses, Joshua took over the baton as the next leader of Israel. Joshua forged a link between the days of Moses and the remainder of Israel’s history. When a “Moses” dies, you must gather all strength and forge ahead.
You have to bury your Moses because he is dead and move on because there is a new chapter emerging in your life. You have to cross your Jordan in order to get to your Promised Land, the land God has given to you.
The just shall live by faith; so it will take a faith-walk to get into your Promised Land. Remember, as you take the step of faith, the Lord will be with you and honour your faith.
- Pray that you will possess the land that God has given to you.
- Pray that you will cross your Jordan. Joshua 1:2
