The Word of God is spoken to Joshua for
his encouragement. Before we can speak the Word of God to others, the
Word of God must be spoken to us.
"Do not turn from it to the right
or to the left" (Joshua 1:5). We are pulled this way and that way. We
must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. "This book of instruction must not
depart from your mouth ... carefully observe everything written in it"
In the strength of the Lord (Joshua 1:6,9) - We must
never forget this. without His strength, we are nothing. With His
strength, everything changes. Life becomes new. The Holy Spirit is
leading us on into God's future. We don't stay where we are. We move on
to where God wants us to be.
"Joshua" = "salvation" - This points us forward to Jesus.
The land was given and had to be claimed - a picture of salvation: by grace through faith for good works (Ephesians 2:8-10).
