Joshua 1:1-9 (NLT) 1 After the death of Moses the LORD’s servant, the LORD spoke to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ assistant. He said, 2 “Moses my servant is dead. Therefore, the time has come for you to lead these people, the Israelites, across the Jordan River into the land I am giving them. 3 I promise you what I promised Moses: ‘Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you— 4 from the Negev (Ne-give) wilderness in the south to the Lebanon mountains in the north, from the Euphrates River in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west, including all the land of the Hittites.’ 5 No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you. 6 “Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. 7 Be strong and very (enormously) courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. 8 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. 9 This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
Deuteronomy 34:8 NLT – The people of Israel mourned for Moses on the plains of Moab for thirty days, until the customary period of mourning was over. When you are destined for greatness:
1. You are always exemplifying gratefulness for the things that God has done! Psalm 23:6 KJV – Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
2. You expect the unexpected, and still trust God through it all! When plan and purpose meet, it’s destiny! Jeremiah 29:11 NIV – I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.3. The Lord expects you to obey Him!
