Joshua 1:1-9 NIV 

1 After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: 2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. 3 I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. 4 Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. 5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them. 7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”




| IDEA |

  • Your spiritual muscles will always move from memory until you train them differently. 
  • “We should all fear looking back and wondering what might have been if you had just trusted and obeyed." - Stephen Chandler
  • It's time to look forward and embrace the courage we can find in Jesus


| BIG IDEA |

Courage in the present is fueled by His proven past promises.

  

| ACTION STEPS |


A. Moving by the direction of God takes more courage than you realize

  • Joshua 1:7-8
  • 7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.


| IDEA |

Could it be that God jumps into your problem but doesn’t take it away, just to teach you that you can be in a mess and not be a mess?



B. When your courage waivers, His promises don’t

  • Joshua 1:9
  • 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
