Joshua 1:5-6: “Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous …”
Incredible promise to one who had seen mighty works done through Moses. I can imagine him thinking, “You mean, the same God who used Moses to deliver an entire nation and part the Red Sea — he’s going to be with me the same way?!”
Joshua had faith to believe God’s promises, faith to obey, faith to succeed. God, give me that kind of strength and courage. Be with me. Don’t leave me or forsake me. Just as you were with Moses and Joshua, be with me.
