Have you ever tried a “trust fall”? It’s when a person will free-fall backward into the arms of someone or a group of people. It is supposed to build trust and teamwork. Don’t do a trust fall forwards.

While these scenarios are comical, people who criticize faith assume that Christians don’t know who is catching them. They assume we are just blindly and intelligently going backward. However, Christians can trust fall into the arms of God because we know God and can trust he will catch us.

Have you ever been fearful to complete a newly assigned task? Maybe your boss reassigned you within the company. Maybe your spouse’s job offered them a position that required going back to school soon. Whatever the situation, most of us have been in a situation where we’re forced to learn or adapt, and we’re expected to do so quickly.

This can certainly lead to fear.

This is exactly where Joshua finds himself. Moses has led the nation and has led it well. Now, God is calling Joshua to lead the nation of Israel. Moses would lead his people out of Egypt, and Joshua would lead his people to new land. What a task!
Big Idea of the Message: By meditating on God’s Word, we can turn our thinking from self-focused to God-focused.
