Text: Joshua 1:12-18 (KJV)

12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,

13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, The LORD your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land.

14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them;

15 Until the LORD have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which the LORD your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD’S servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising.

16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.

17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.

18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.

Key Verse: “And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go. According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.” – (Joshua 1:16,17)


People usually put up different reactions when there is a change, particularly in leadership. While some are excited with the change and are ready to move on with the new leader, some are cold, reserved and not too keen to move along. They prefer to wait and watch, not being too sure what the change would evoke. Change is inevitable and we must learn to quickly adapt to it especially when it is brought about by God.

The response of the children of Israel to the charge of Joshua as he assumes the new leadership role after Moses was most challenging. They all, with one voice, pledged their undivided loyalty to Joshua. They must have seen his appointment as divine and must have realised that their corporate success in possessing the Promised Land depended on their accepting the divinely appointed leader and rallying round him. They must have learned valuable lessons from their history and by experience, known how costly and damaging rebellion and disunity was. To be able to confront the more organised and experienced armies of the enemy nations, they knew they needed all the support they could get from God and their leader.

Rebelling against God’s choice will only be to our hurt. And in accepting the new leader, we must not make the mistake of trying to compare his gifts and leadership style with the previous leader. He may not have as much gift as the past leader, but he has a heavenly mandate to accomplish in your life. We are not just helping him to succeed when we do this; we are equally helping ourselves to reach our goal of the Promised Land.

Thought For The Day: Rebellion and disunity will retard our onward journey.
