APRIL 23, 2023 ~ THEMATIC JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE
APRIL 23 READING…JOSHUA 11-12 & PSALM 149 & PROVERBS 23
It’s great to know who your friends are…it is equally important to know your enemies. God gave Joshua direction on how to take the kings in the north of the Holy Land. Joshua was faithful to follow the Lord’s leadership in the conquest of this northern region. The Lord’s battle plan was not always exactly the same…this required Joshua to stay close to the Lord, and obey Him completely. Joshua learned that the battle belonged to the Lord. The Psalmist calls us to praise the Lord, for He has won the battles…not just one battle, He is the Victor in all our battles. In Proverbs we are warn not to be in awe of earthly kings, nor sit at their table, nor eat their delicacies…this could come at a high price. Remember to properly correct your child, so they will grow in the wisdom of the Lord. Be careful of becoming intoxicated with alcohol…remain sober, and clear minded, so you can understand and apply the Lord’s wisdom in all things.
Please share your thoughts.
