God works with and through man:
-He used Noah to build an Ark. -He used Joseph to save the world from famine. -He used Moses to deliver His people from bondage. -He used Ezra to lead His people back to Jerusalem after captivity. -He used Nehemiah to build a wall around Jerusalem. -He used prophets to deliver His message. -He used twelve men and the early church to take the gospel to the world.
All throughout the pages of scripture, God works with and through man.
Take time to review Joshua chapter 1 regarding the plan for the conquest of the Promised Land, observing God's part and the people's part:
Joshua and the people were told to:
-Go over: 1:2. -Be strong: 1:6-7, 9. -Be of good courage: 1:6-7, 9.
-Not fear: 1:9. -Not be dismayed: 1:9. -Claim their inheritance: 1:6.
-Commit to God's Word: 1:7-8.
-Observe it. -Do not be diverted from it. -Speak it. -Meditate on it. -Obey it.
-Prepare themselves to possess the land: 1:11.
God's part: -He would give them the land: 1:2-4. -He would see that no man would be able to withstand them: 1:5.
-He would be with them as He was with Moses: 1:5. -He would not fail them: 1:5. -He would not forsake them: 1:5. -He would give them prosperity and success: 1:7-8. -He would be with them wherever they went: 1:9.
