Lessons from the book of Joshua
Joshua 11:23 – Legacy
God told Moses about His plan to settle Israel in a certain place and while Moses was around, it looked like it was the only mission of his administration. Then, he suddenly had to step aside.
Then comes another president. If it were to be in our time, the new administration would have taken up a new project and charted a new course just so that it can be remembered for something meaningful based on its novelty, but Joshua stayed the course and fulfilled the assignment given him, the same one given his master. He took his place in destiny as a tool in the agenda of God, rather than try to draw up an agenda of his own. He chose to be a single thread in an eternal divine tapestry over being a banner of a very temporary human crusade. And going by the fact that I’m still talking about him today, in good light, I’d say he chose well. You should too.
All that said, this truth is also clear, kingdoms will rise and fall, administrations will come and go, power will change hands from person to person and all the while, the agenda of God will never change.
All things work together to bring God’s plan to pass – all things and all persons.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.
