“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
If you’ve read the book of Joshua, you’re aware it’s about how the Israelites conquered Canaan, the Promised Land. Through their stories of biblical blemishes, battles and miracles, you can see how Joshua is a leader, very obedient to God. He faces overwhelming odds with divine help.
Leading inspirational author, Max Lucado’s book, Glory Days: Living Your Promised Land Life Now
, has written his account of living your own promised land based on the Old Testament book of Joshua where the promised land isn’t a physical place, but a spiritual reality.
Glory Days spells out the way to close the gap between the person we are and the person we want to be by expecting life’s challenges and knowing that God’s promise is victory for we are joint heirs with Christ! We already have God’s favor if we believe and trust in Him — victory is ours.
Lucado reminds us that the Promised Land property has been placed in our name just as God placed Joshua’s Promised Land in his name, we, too, are just like Joshua.
How did Joshua do it?
Lucado says it best when he says, “. . . it wasn’t enough for Joshua to possess the Scriptures; God wanted the Scriptures to possess Joshua.”
