Deuteronomy 3:21-22 (JDV)
Deuteronomy 3:21 “I commanded Joshua at that time, and this is what I said: Your own eyes have seen everything Yahveh your God has done to these two kings. Yahveh will do the same to all the kingdoms you are about to enter.
Deuteronomy 3:22 Don’t be afraid of them, because Yahveh your God fights for you.
Seeing his imprint
Moses had been given the task of strengthening Joshua. Part of the task was training him to register what he had seen with his own eyes. Faith for Joshua began when he dared to believe that God was fighting for him. It was not so much seeing what was not there as it was recognizing what was. The defeat of Sihon and Og was either luck or God. Moses taught Joshua to see God’s imprint.
Lord, you are at work in our lives. Open our eyes so that we can see your imprint.
