Joshua (2)

After Moses died, Joshua became the leader of the Israelites. Our Bible verses today tell us some of the instructions God gave Joshua when he became the leader of the Israelites.
God told Joshua to obey Moses’ commands and to remember what was written in the book of law. He also told Joshua to not be afraid. But God told Joshua one thing over and over again, “Be strong and brave” (verses 6, 7 and 9).
Joshua and the Israelites faced many things in the years after that. They faced great armies and strong cities. But Joshua always reminded the people that they should be strong and brave.
What kind of difficult situation are you facing today — illness, loss of a job, the death of a loved one? No matter what you have to face, you can depend on God to be with you. Be strong and brave like Joshua today!
