January 13, 2024

While most of the Israelites moved into the cities they overtook, Joshua was allotted a portion that had no previously built structures. Before he could move, homes for the families within his family had to be constructed; he had to build his own city. From scripture, Joshua seemed selfless and put the needs of the other families of Israel before his own and his family's. He waited until all Israel had been given their portion before considering himself. Even though Joshua could have picked anywhere because of his position, he chose land within his tribe's allotment. Joshua was a good man; he gave the children of Israel a picture of Jesus because he was a type of Christ. Joshua was a godly leader. He's the example of how government should work, which is the exact opposite of the kind of leadership we see in our governments today. Rather than take, take, take, Joshua gave everything he had to promote the good of his people. We may not see that kind of leadership again until Jesus comes to rule and reign. Try as we may to elect good leaders; the world governments are too filthy and corrupt to allow that to happen. Our hope lies in Jesus; we can take comfort in him. 

Do not be discouraged by what you see in the press; most of what they tell are lies and do not give us a good picture of what is truly happening. Pray and trust that God has our best interest at heart; his plan is to help and not harm us. We are in good hands; trust Him.

When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them: According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein. Joshua 19:49-50
