Encouragement of Moses
The Lord instructed Moses to encourage Joshua in Deuteronomy 1:38, “But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.”
How necessary it is to understand that the young need help and encouragement as they set forth upon the uncharted courses of leadership. No leader can reproduce the past. Life progresses!The Church of God is moving on.
The Lord said to Joshua, “Ye have not passed this way heretofore” (Josh. 3:4). Every new generation has a fresh task that is different from that of the previous generation.Therefore, we will need to be of good courage and have complete reliance upon God, so that the part of the journey that is entrusted into our hands for any given congregation is successfully completed to God’s satisfaction.
Moses said in Deuteronomy 3:21-22, “And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou
passest. Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you.” The Lord told Moses to encourage Joshua again in Deuteronomy 3:28, “But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.”
