Stepping Out

Transition is a part of life. Change can be both exciting and scary. Joshua probably felt both of those emotions in the beginning of his story in the Bible book of Joshua- he was about to step out as the next leader of God’s chosen people, the Israelites. Their first beloved leader, Moses, had died. He would be a tough act to follow!

Joshua was going to lead the people into a new territory. Both God and the people tell Joshua to be strong and courageous as they step out and into this new life. God didn’t lay it all out for them; He just told them to step out and trust. We need to do the same as we face transitions in our own lives. (Read Joshua chapters 1, 2, and 3)
