Joshua 1:2-3 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise…Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.
The day that change begins is the day that you decide that it will never be the same again and follow through with taking the right action.
Regardless of the promise God has made concerning your life, your success is limited by the extent to which you are willing to take action towards it. God told Joshua in Joshua 1:3 that every place that the sole of his feet shall tread, that he would give to him. While that is a reason to shout, its implication runs both ways. It also meant that if no steps were made towards possessing the promised land, nothing would be achieved. To get the victory you must take deliberate steps daily and weekly towards what God has promised.
Decide to make a change. It is notable that before God told Joshua that everywhere the sole of his feet touch will be given to him, He told him to arise in Joshua 1:2. What God was effectively saying to Joshua by telling him to arise was: choose not to remain in the same state by making a decision to create change.
It had been 40 years since the Children of Israel had come out of Egypt and they had not seen their promised land. It was time for change. To create that change they would have to decide to make that change and show evidence of that by taking steps towards walking into victory. Led by Joshua they did that and as they say the rest is history. What was done by Joshua and the Israelites is repeatable in your life today just decide to arise and make changes.
Decide to create change by planning and taking steps towards what God has promised.
Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. Help me to make the necessary changes for growth. In Jesus name, amen.
