Featured Passage: Joshua 2-6
After Moses’ death, God selected Joshua to lead the children of Israel into their new homeland. But it would not be easy! The Canaanites lived there, and would not leave willingly, even though God had promised this land to the Israelites hundreds of years earlier. Joshua knew that God would fight for Israel, if necessary, to fulfill His promise. In Egypt God brought Pharaoh to his knees with plagues, forcing Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go. What miracles would God perform to help His people this time? How would He bring the Israelites into a land flowing with milk and honey? How would God help Israel now?
- Israel fought many battles to go into the promised land, but who was the one who made sure they won against their enemies?
- How did Joshua show loyalty to God?
- What were some of the miracles that God performed for the Israelites as they came into the land of Canaan?
- Joshua set a good example as Israel’s leader. What are some things we can do to set a good example for others?
So the LORD was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout all the country.
