Over the last few weeks, we have embraced the brutal realities that Joshua was now thrust onto the scene as the head guy. I’m sure that there was at least a little understanding that Joshua was Moses’ right hand man, but even that understanding doesn’t really prepare you to truly take the position without question or fear.

In reality, God asked Joshua to be an Agent of Change.

Often, when we decide—or are called—to be an agent of change for God, fear will rise up against us. Throughout the Scriptures, God encourages his people not to be slaves to fear, but rather, to live boldly and courageously (see Joshua 1:9).

If we allow fear to hold us back and paralyze us, we cannot function as agents of change for God’s purposes in the earth. Oswald Sanders stated, “A great deal more failure is the result of an excess of caution than of bold experimentation with new ideas. The frontiers of the kingdom of God were never advanced by men and women of caution” (Alan Hirsch, The Forgotten Ways [Grand Rapids: Brazos Press, 2016], 19).

So today, we are going to pick up on that thought. Joshua didn’t go the road of caution. And because of that, we see the miraculous.

Big Idea of the Message: It’s not that God was a God of miracles; He still is and wants to make himself known and real in our lives. God can set you free from your bondage today.

Application Point: Just as God desired to give the nation of Israel victory, he desires to give us victory over sin in our lives.
