Reading: The New Leader Joshua (Numbers 27:12~23)
Today, we will begin to learn about a man named Joshua. The Lord selected Joshua to be the next leader of Israel after the death of Moses. God gave Joshua the task of leading the people into the promised land. It was a big responsibility to be the new leader and Joshua probably wondered if he could do such a hard job
After Moses died, the LORD talked to Joshua. Remember Joshua was fighting the Amalekites when Aaron and Hur were holding up Moses' heavy hands (see May - Lesson - Moses' Heavy Hands on this blog), he was the one who walked up Mt. Sinai with Moses (see May - Lesson - Moses Goes Up The Mountain on this blog), and he was also one of the twelve spies that went into the Land of Canaan to spy out the land (see May - Lesson - The Spies on this blog). Now, we find that God has chosen Joshua above all of the other Israelites to talk to, to give His commands and instructions to, and to trust to take the Israelites, His chosen people, to the Promised land. He told Joshua that Moses, His servant, had died, and to take His people over the Jordan River into the land that God had promised the children of Israel. God said that everywhere that Joshua walked was given to His people just like God had promised Moses. God told Joshua that no one in the land of Canaan would be able to stand up against Joshua, but Joshua had to be strong, very strong, and courageous! Remember when we learned when God said something one time, it was important, and when He said something twice, it was extremely important? God told Joshua to be strong and courageous FOUR times!! God really meant it, didn't He? Joshua needed to strong and courageous to lead the people.
