God Commanded Joshua to Claim The Land


“I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses" (Joshua 1:3)

God had already given the land of Canaan to the children of Israel.

Moses, the man of God was dead.

But the work of God must go on.

Joshua was commanded to lead the people into Canaan to claim the land.

The land was given to them back in Gen. 12:7.

The promises were reaffirmed to every succeeding generation of the nation of Israel.

The land of Canaan was their land! They didn’t have to go on wandering around in the wilderness.

The land of Canaan was their land! All they had to do was to claim it!

*******

Some Christians live a defeated life.

They continue to struggle with sins.

They continue to wander around their spiritual wilderness.

*******

God has a place of victory for Christians.

He has promised us that we can live in that place of peace and blessing.

*******

Most of the time, we are defeated because we refuse to walk in victory!

There is a place of conquest for us.

Let us set out to claim our land of Canaan.
