We typically think of Joshua as taking the Promised Land. It’s more precise to think of Joshua as taking God at his word. God said, “I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses” (Joshua 1:3). Joshua led the Hebrews to cross the Jordan, bring down the walls of Jericho, and defeat the thirty-one enemy kings. Every time he faced a challenge, he did so with faith, because he trusted his inheritance.
What if you did the same? Standing before you is a Jericho wall of fear. Brick upon brick of anxiety and dread. It’s a stronghold that keeps you out of Canaan. Circumstances say, “Cower to your fears.” Your inheritance says otherwise: You are a child of the King. His perfect love casts out fear. Move forward. Choose your inheritance.
