It was the Lord who drove out the Amorites and the other nations living here in the land. So, we, too, will serve the Lord, for he alone is our God.” Joshua 24:18
My wife and I were having dinner with her parents some time ago and my mother-in law asked me a question, to which I responded with a 30-minute story of my life. LOL! Afterwards, feeling a little embarrassed, I told them I was sorry for going into such a long story, to which they were very kind and said they really enjoyed hearing every detail. It actually left me feeling unsure who may have gotten more out of that story, them or me, because afterward I felt charged and full of faith. It was a story I hadn’t told in a long while, and just sharing the details of my own personal testimony of God’s faithfulness in my life, which my in-laws had never heard before, really got me excited.
That’s exactly what Joshua did too. Nearing the end of his life, and just like Moses had done, Joshua recalled everything God had done for the Children of Israel. They needed to hear every single detail because they would need faith to keep their trust in the Lord throughout the years to come. When faced with future challenges they would need to know that if God had done it before, He would do it again.
Today, recall what God has done for you and let your faith be charged!
