The Sower's Daily Devotional for November 13, 2009
Read Joshua 1:9 TLB
A man said to his guests, “I admire courage. It made me a billionaire.”
Pointing to a swimming pool, filled with alligators, he said, “I’ll give you anything, if you’ll jump in and swim to the other side.”
Suddenly he heard a splash. He saw a man swimming for his life. He made it to the other side unharmed.
“What do you want?” asked the billionaire.
“Just one thing." said the breathless man. "To know who pushed me into the pool!”
Moses died. He needed a successor. God gave Joshua a push, saying, “Banish fear and doubt! For remember, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua became obedient to the Lord. He united a people, and his memory bears no stain.
Prayer: Father, we accept Thy divine leading with courage and confidence. Strengthen and sustain us with Thy counsel and companionship: through Christ. Amen.
