Joshua 10:25 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Joshua 10:25

Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the LORD will do to all the enemies you are going to fight."


I love this verse and the principle found in the book of Joshua. Joshua is telling the Israelites to do the same thing the Lord had told him earlier in this book. See, Joshua knows that the best leaders are the ones who follow the Lord the closest and then pass that wisdom, faith, encouragement, and hope on to their people. Joshua doesn’t keep this insight for himself or use it to make himself more powerful or desirable, but rather shares it so that the whole community can give the Lord praise and continue to seek and rely on Him!


This principle applies to all of us, not just those in ministry but to everyone who calls themselves a disciple of Christ. We are called to be different, set apart, leaders in one way or another. We have to be like Joshua and be willing to first receive the Truth and then walk it out! Once we have done that in our own lives, we are called to share it with those around us. Wisdom and knowledge from the Lord are not treasures to bury or hide but to share in the edification and encouragement of His people!


If Information is a weapon, then information and insight from the Lord would be a nuke! There is an old saying that knowledge is power, and I believe that to be true. The question is, what side are you using yours for? Empower each other with Truth from the Lord and be ready to watch your world change!!!!


Whatever flows from you, let it flow from Christ in you!!!!


I love you all. God bless and Praise, Glory and Honor to Almighty God, King Jesus, and The Spirit of Truth the Holy Spirit!
