Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. Joshua 1:3 NKJV
No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Joshua 1:5 NKJV
God chose Moses to deliver His people from bondage in Egypt. He chose Moses to deliver the Ten Commandments and the law. Moses led the children of Israel on their journey through the desert.
God revealed Himself to Moses. God spoke to Moses face to face. When Moses returned from meetings with God the glory of the Lord shone upon His face. Moses died before Israel entered the Promised Land.
Joshua was Moses’ aide. He witnessed the mighty works God accomplished through Moses. Joshua witnessed the special relationship between the Lord and Moses. Joshua saw Moses at his best and worst. Joshua witnessed the faithfulness of God in Moses’ life.
Moses trained and discipled Joshua. He prepared Joshua for the day God would call him to lead. Moses prepared Joshua for God’s call on his life.
Jesus is calling us to be a light to the next generation. He is calling us to make disciples. Jesus wants us to train up Godly men and women who will pass on the faith to the next generation and on to the next until the Lord comes to claim His bride!
Jesus prepares the people He calls to serve in His ministry. He uses other disciples to prepare disciple makers.
Before you can be a disciple maker you must be a disciple of the true and original disciple maker, Jesus Christ. Keep your heart and eyes firmly fixed on Jesus so other people can see the reflection of Jesus in your life!
Ask Jesus to bring a Joshua into your life. Ask the Lord to use you in another person’s life the way God used Moses to train Joshua!
