SUP With Me: Words of Inspiration
(Reference scriptures: Joshua 1:1-8)
In the book of Joshua Chapter 1, we discover that Moses, who was in charge of leading the Israelites to the promised land, had died. The Lord spoke to Joshua, which at the time was Moses’ assistant, instructing him to move into leadership and prepare the people to cross over the Jordan and pursue the promised land.
The Lord encouraged Joshua to be bold and courageous; He told him that everywhere he would place his feet was already given to him. The Lord reassured Joshua that no one would be able to stand against him as long as he lived.
Our ability to prosper and be successful simply comes through our: Obedience, Faith and ability to maintain Sobriety and Vigilance on the Lord’s promises for our life. We see that the Lord had a purposed plan for Joshua to lead the Israelites. He gave him the vision and made it plain, that he may be able to see and understand what he was in pursuit of and why.
The Lord had already taken care of everything for Joshua, but it would require Joshua’s active participation of Faith to experience the Lord’s prosperity and success for his life and the Israelites. The Lord desires to have our active participation as well. He has a wonderful plan and purpose for our lives, but in order for us to obtain it we must be willing to sacrifice our personal motives and feelings. There will always be other options other plans that can form, but we must choose those of the Lord. So let us all be encouraged to live in Boldness, Courage, Obedience, Faith, Sobriety and Vigilance, that we too may experience the promises of the Lord, living in prosperity and success in all that we do!
