Jos 1:2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them–to the Israelites. The promise land was a promise from God to the Israelites;The descendants of Jacob.The promise was first made to Abraham in Genesis 15:18. (18 In that day the Lord made an agreement with Abram, and said, To your seed have I given this land from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:) Then renewed to his son Isaac.The promise however was fulfilled at the end of the exodus from Egypt.( Deut 1:8 ) After the death of moses,God appointed Joshua to lead Gods people to the promise land.God then promised Joshua that he will alway be with him just as he was with Moses.In addition to this God also warned Joshua to be strong and very courageous. He stressed on this three times.This was to warn him about the challenges he will face before taking the promise land. There is a Promise land for every individual.It is the reason why you are still living.It could be a huge expectation from God or a promise or prophesy of God concerning your life.The promise land is a present tense possession. t is actually here on earth.We need to be strong and very courageous.The word courageous means not deterred by danger or pain.It means to be able to deal with danger without flinching.God is saying the samething to all of us today.Be strong and courageous.To be something means you have it in you.You can be whatever it is you are commanded to be.Today may you be filled with courage like that of David’s, to become a giant killer.May you be induced with divine strength to confront challenges as they come. Stay blessed.
