He’s a spiritual superhero of great magnitude. The aroma of his faith in the Lord drew to magnamous proportions, even when faced by the stench of unacceptance by the majority. He believed the Lord when it was spoken that he would be taken to the land of milk and honey, just as if he knew the sun was warm and ice was chilly. “He” is Joshua and he’s a ball of fire, a spiritually encouraging ball of fire.
There’s a prayer thrown up fairly often in our house, “Lord, may our family be a family of Joshua’s.” It’s my heart’s desire that we will walk in mountain-moving faith, believing in and trusting the Lord even amid the face of fleshly adversity. This prayer lifts up thoughts of spiritual eyes that will see opportunity and feet that will continue on the Lord’s path until His glory is revealed.
I think it’s time to pray that prayer again and to dig into Numbers 13-14 and the book of Joshua. I’ll be praying that you’ll be a Joshua too, believing in and entering that land of the promised milk & honey.
