Joshua 1:5, “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

As we continue in Joshua’s walk to the land of Canaan, there is a mighty word of power that becomes Joshua’s foundation to live by, walk by and fight by. Joshua 1:5 says, “As I was with Moses, so I will be with thee, I will not leave thee nor forsake thee.” The leader of forty years is gone. Joshua was his servant and suddenly the enormous task of taking these people into the land is given to Joshua. Bringing them out of Egypt would be incomplete without taking them into Canaan. The life in between “out of Egypt” and “into Canaan” is a life of wandering, futility, oppression and weakness. It is not enough to be out, for I am not in the place of victory, my lifestyle becomes stagnant, non-productive and oppressive. The same words given to Joshua that resound with hope, assurance, power and glory are given to you today. Someone needs to leave the “in between” life of the wilderness and occupy the God-given gift of Canaan. Verse 5, “As I was..., so I will be...” This is God’s bridge from the past to the future, through the present. What I did for Moses, I will do for you, today and tomorrow. This is God’s bridge from the great to the small. Moses was considered a great leader and Joshua was not yet proven but God bridges that gap. This is God’s bridge from the old to the new or the familiar to the unfamiliar. New things, unfamiliar things will be given unto you.

Joshua 1:5, “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

This is the continuing adventure of Joshua as he is about to take promises of God and walk in the realm of power he has never walked in before. Joshua 1:5 is an amazing guarantee given by God to the one that is ready to walk in the power of the promise. There are many in church life that talk the promise but never walk in its power. The divine guarantee of verse 5 came after the divine command of verse 3. There are parts of God’s plan that only becomes yours when obedience becomes a personal application. To obey is better than sacrifice. “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee, al the days of thy life.” The word is so powerful that when it is followed, all that stand in the way of the inheriting of that promise will fall. This promise is a lifetime promise that will not fail. There are three positions spoken of in the Bible that are important to the quality of your spiritual life. They are sit, walk, stand. I am seated in heavenly places; I walk worthy of the vocation wherewith I am called; and I stand against wiles of the enemy. As I walk in the Spirit and in the promise of His Word, the blessings of being seated in heavenly places flows through me. The result of this is my ability to stand against the enemy. Let us be sure that our talk is empowered by our walk.
