Looking at the life of Joshua we learnt about how a leaders courageous forward faith brought the promises of God to completion. Entering the promise land and claiming the words spoken many generations prior to Abraham.
God knew that Joshua could not do the task at hand on his own, commanding him to be bold and courageous several times. God also knew that Joshua needed the empowering of the great “I AM” to bring this to completion. As we move into the year of empowered know that like Joshua, God calls us to be bold and courageous to empower us to do what he has called us to do.
Over this season of rest and renewal reflect on this year, the moments when God has commanded you to be bold and courageous. Reflect on how Gods empowerment always came through with the calling.
Take this season to sit at the feet of your father, listen to his whispers to your heart, and the callings he has for you in this new and upcoming year of empowerment.
Start to meditate in the book of Acts, seeing the empowerment of the church and the body of Christ. Why not take a backtrack on the “soul connection blog” and revisit the many lessons we learn from Joshua and his forward faith.
From my heart to yours, may God richly bless you as you take time to be still and know that He is God. This season be present and prepare Him room in your heart, soul, spirit and strength to fall deeper in Love with a God who gave the gift of grace in his son.
Merry Christmas may you rest, renew and refresh this season to be empowered for the new year ahead.
