provisions for possessing the land

Joshua 1:10 -11 (JDV)

Joshua 1:10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people:
Joshua 1:11 “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get provisions ready for yourselves, because within three days you will be crossing the Jordan to go in and take possession of the land Yahveh is giving you to inherit.'”

provisions for possessing the land

When I was harvesting blueberries in Maine (many years ago) I would prepare for the next day’s work by making the meals I would eat, and freezing water overnight in a gallon jug so that I could drink from the jug as the ice melted. There were no stores I could go to out on the blueberry barrens, so that all had to be done the night before the harvest.

Good leaders don’t just let things happen — they prepare their team for what is coming next. If our mission is making disciples in our hometown and in other nations, we need to be organizing the troops to make that happen. We need to be preparing for the next harvest.

Lord, give us the wisdom to prepare for the work of leading people to Christ.
