Encouragement (Part 1): Week 2, Day 2

Welcome back for another day of studying Joshua 1:1-9.  Before we start INTERPRETING the text, read through it slowly.  Take time to absorb with the text says.

Read through the text a second time and answer the following questions in your notebook:
  1. In verses 1-5, who is talking?
  2. Who is He talking to?
  3. What event is about to happen?
  4. What does God say about Himself in verses 2, 3, and 5? (seven things)
  5. What does God command Joshua in verses 6 and 9?
  6. What command does God give to Joshua in verses 7 and 8?
  7. In verse 7, the words "so that" answer the question Why.  Why is Joshua to follow the law carefully?
  8. In verse 8, what is Joshua to do with the law?  Why?
  9. In verse 9, why can Joshua not tremble or be dismayed?
Doesn't this make you want to jump through the roof with excitement?  Look at how God is leading Joshua on his journey into the Promised Land.  God is in control, and He is going to lead Joshua into success, if Joshua continues to remain faithful to God.

In our next study together, we will look at how we can APPLY this passage of Scripture to our lives.  See you then!
