Nothing is to Big for God!

The task must have seemed overwhelming to Joshua.  It surely caused him some concern.  Filling the shoes of Moses was not small mission.  

By the grace and strength of God, Moses had led the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt, parted the Red Sea on their escape from charging armies of Pharaoh, Met with God face to face on Mount Sinai,  and guided them through the wilderness for 40 years until they were finally ready to enter the promised land.  Oh, and he did and all this despite the complaining and whining of a nation.  

Joshua must have wondered how he could follow in the steps of Moses.

Ever been there?  Your task in life seems monumental.  Living life with all the ups and downs.  Raising children, providing for family, obeying and serving God and doing so with an increasingly complaining world.  Hardships come, temptations come and yet we have a high standard of parents before us or God’s word in front of us to strive for.  It can be daunting.  Especially when we get knocked down and we don’t know how we are going to get up.  

Sometimes we need reminded of God’s Word to Joshua when he was facing his  great calling:

“No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live.  I will be with you, just as I was with Moses.  I will not leave you or forsake you.”

-Joshua 1:5

Today listen to the words of God to Joshua and realize that it is not in your strength that you must face the challenges of today.  It is not alone that you must reach for the bar that is set high.  God goes with you.  

Those that have gone before you did so by their selves.  God went with them, guided them, strengthened them, and protected them.  God will do the same for you.  

Face today with the knowledge of God’s love and presence.  Be courageous as God leads you into the fray of the day to day.  Lift high the banner.  Allow God to allow you to reach new heights and raise the bar of expectations as God will work through you to fill the shoes of those that have gone before and leave a testimony to those that will come behind.

Nothing is to big for God, and as He works in you…Nothing is to big for you.
