Joshua was born into slavery, but rose to become a great military leader and commander. He was trained well by his predecessor, Moses. Joshua held many jobs: soldier, servant, spy, and successor. The secret to Joshua’s success was his faith in the Word of God, its commandments, and its promises. Joshua obeyed God wholly while leading the people into their Promised Land.
The book of Joshua records battles, defeats, sins, and failures. What we see in Joshua is not the greatness of this leader, but the greatness of his God. His faith is contagious, his leadership qualities are incomparable, and his warrior skills unsurpassed.
There’s not a book more relational to 21st century believers than Joshua. The battle we are immersed in is very real and false doctrine permeates the church. Christians are Satan’s number one target. But the sad reality is that we often don’t know how to fight in this war. Instead of victory, we become defeated.
