Relax, God has you…
Listening to Chuck Swindoll this morning,

Joshua 1:1-9 (HCSB)
1 After the death of Moses the Lord’s servant,
the Lord spoke to Joshua son of Nun, who had
served Moses: 2 “Moses My servant is dead.
Now you and all the people prepare to cross
over the Jordan to the land I am giving the
Israelites. 3 I have given you every place
where the sole of your foot treads, just as
I promised Moses. 4 Your territory will be
from the wilderness and Lebanon to the great
Euphrates River—all the land of the Hittites—and
west to the Mediterranean Sea. 5 No one will
be able to stand against you as long as you
live. I will be with you, just as I was with
Moses. I will not leave you or forsake you.

6 “Be strong and courageous, for you will
distribute the land I swore to their fathers to
give them as an inheritance. 7 Above all, be
strong and very courageous to carefully observe
the whole instruction My servant Moses commanded
you. Do not turn from it to the right or the left,
so that you will have success wherever you go.
8 This book of instruction must not depart from
your mouth; you are to recite it day and night so
that you may carefully observe everything written
in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in
whatever you do. 9 Haven’t I commanded you: be
strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or
discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you
wherever you go.”

When a man or woman of God dies, nothing of God dies.
He was with you from the beginning and He will be with
you in the ending and He knows where you are and where
you are going perfectly well!

Six Guidelines to take you from where you are to where
you are going:

  1. Let’s accept reality (v1)
  2. Let’s press on, not stay here (v2-4)
  3. Let’s not fear (v5)
  4. Let’s be strong and courageous (v6, 7a, 9a)
  5. Let’s stay focused (v7b, 8)
