Where Jesus Christ Is Lord
Review of Pastor Ferguson's Most Recent Message
By Faith – Part 7
Be very courageous!
Text: Joshua 1:7 & 9
The Israelites departed from Egypt under the leadership of Moses who God uniquely chose to deliver His people from Pharaoh after 430years of oppression.
This great man led the entire nation of Israel towards Canaan – a land the Lord had promised that the Jews would inherit but as they journeyed tragedy struck , Moses the servant of the Most High died (Deuteronomy 34:5) and the promise was yet to be fulfilled.
This was a time of uncertainty for the Hebrews however after the incident the Lord spoke to Joshua son of Nun (who He had chosen to replace Moses) in Joshua 1:7 “Only be thou strong and very courageous…” Why was this crucial?
Forty years had passed since the crossing of the Red Sea and although they were near the Promised Land, their journey was obstructed by the impassable Jordan River!
Christians, often times we will face great challenges and oppositions in our life pursuits and to overcome these obstacles we will need great courage and faith in God.
In verse 9 of our text, the Lord reiterated to Joshua “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest”.
Essentially, the crossing of River Jordan and the inheritance of the Promised Land depended on Joshua’s complete obedience to God’s commands, his ability to remain focused in the midst of chaos and he had to be very courageous!
May the Lord raise men and women of incredible faith and boldness in our day that will stand in times of adversities!
I Am New Here
In the book of Hebrews 11:1 we read these words “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”.
The word used for faith here means, a foundation, assurance, title-deeds, in reality when we talk about faith in God if we really have it, it becomes all the proof we need, verse 3 tells us, “Through faith we understand…” this suggest that without faith we cannot understand the things and ways of God.
Here at Faith Dimensions Ministries we encourage our members to believe and walk by faith in our never failing God.
We believe in the ability of the word of God to save, heal and deliver through the power of the Holy Spirit and because we love our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ we cannot cease to praise His name.
