    Pitched His Tent

    Pitched His Tent

    Reading Psalms 61:1-8 (NLT) ~ Scripture reading followed by discussion. David cries from the ends of the earth. Being scattered, overwhelmed, and how God draws us to Himself. God’s presence, brings protection, and gives us peace. When we are overwhelmed and do not feel safe, we can feel alone. Matthew 5:3. When we are in the struggle, we need to purposefully move our mind back to God, who is near and is drawing you close. Sanctuary, literally meant “tent” just like the Tabernacle. God chooses to live and dwell with people. Deuteronomy 5:29, “Oh that they would always have hearts like this, that they might fear me and obey all my commands! If they did, they and their descendants would proser forever. John 15:13-17, there is no longer a master/slave relationship; now there is friendship as were are adopted into the family of the promise.

    Remain In His Love

    Remain In His Love

    Reading Joshua 22:1-10 (NLT) ~ Scripture reading followed by discussion. Jumping from chapter 11 to chapter 22. God helping Israel clear out the land, dividing the land, Caleb getting his allotment of land, the daughters of Zelophehad getting their land. Some of the tribes failing to fully drive out the people. Cities of Refuge established. Joshua’s encouragement to the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half tribe of Manasseh. Joshua does not want the distance, or the natural barrier of the Jordan river keep them from staying rooted in the LORD, Jeremiah 17:7-8. Deuteronomy 6:5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. Deuteronomy 6:11. Following Jesus means making disciples and being discipled.

    Burn the Chariots

    Burn the Chariots

    Reading Joshua 11:1-23 (NLT) ~ Scripture reading followed by discussion. Israel once again is faced with a collective of kings and their armies seeking to destroy Israel. God once again says “do not be afraid”. Isaiah 31:1, trusting in military might and not in the LORD. Joshua killing the descendants of Anak, the giants that the people of Israel were afraid of when they first sent spies into the land.  Joshua’s victories came because of His obedience to the instructions God gave Moses and Moses gave to him. We have a call to obey and follow Jesus.

    Victory is the LORD’s

    Victory is the LORD’s

    Reading Joshua 10:16-43 (NLT) ~ Scripture reading followed by discussion. Israel’s history of wishy-washy obedience seeming to come to an end. Victories continue coming from the LORD as they obey. The confidence boosting/faith building moments of victory. The repeated encouragement to not be afraid or discouraged but to be strong and courageous.  Keeping eyes focused on God and the call He has put on your life will go well for you and your life.

    Defended

    Reading Joshua 10:1-15 (NLT) ~ Scripture reading followed by discussion. The Gibeonites’ deception was an act of faith that the LORD would do what the LORD said He would do. Jacob’s deception and the consequences of his lies. The Gibeonites were known to have strong warriors. Just like all the other victories, this was an act of God. The LORD through them into a panic and the hailstorm that killed more than the Israelites killed with their swords. The LORD didn’t use the Amorite kings to take out the people who tricked God’s people into a treaty, instead He rescued them.  Even in the Old Testament we see examples of people turning to God.

    Go to God

    Go to God

    Reading Joshua 9:1-27 (NLT) ~ Scripture reading followed by discussion. The difference between what we see and what God sees.  We can only see what is presented to us, God sees down into people’s heart. Israel relied on their own examination and do not consult the LORD.  The call for us to remain in a posture of humility so that we go to God for everything we need.
