When studying the bible to put it into practice you have to do more than read, you also have to listen. The Bible is the Word of God written to you. You can trust in the words that are written and allow the word to speak to you.
This week I will read the book of Joshua. Joshua was a man who lived a life that gave God a good testimony. Joshua was committed to obeying God.
Following God wherever he leads and submitting to whatever it costs.
Reading the book of Joshua will show a testimony of a life that God took from one place and crossed the people into a new life in the promised land.
I am seeking the examples from the bible of followers of God and how these lives of testimony will impact my own life.
In Joshua the Israelites had just finished 40 yrs in the desert and in the first chapter,
Joshua 1: 5
“No one will be able to stand up 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.”
What a wonderful promise of God. When God asks us to do something or go where he wants us to go, he isn’t just saying go, he is saying go and I will go with you.
May the words of God speak to you as you read listen and follow God in your own life.
Grace and Peace be with you from God our father.
