The Lord had given great success to Joshua in conquering the land that was promised to the Israelites after Moses led them out of Egypt. In chapter 12, listed are the kings Joshua and the Israelites conquered. Reading in Joshua 13, the Lord tells Joshua that there is more item of work to be done.
The major challenge we all face is being able to balance everything so we can fulfill our purpose in life. Therefore, there is a great need to study our priorities; go after first what is most important and then like the domino effect, items on the task list start to fall one after another.
Such was the case with the cities and land that Joshua conquered. Then Joshua came to the point in life when he pivots from conquest to settling in. His credibility would be tested as he tries to complete the purpose God had given him.
This day with You Lord, an amazing future is available because of who You are and who we are; an important name in history – one of Your children. May we all find and fulfill the purpose You have for each of us so that Your will is done. Amen
