Joshua 1.1. Our Dwelling Place in All Generations

"After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord spoke to Joshua son of Nun..." (Joshua 1.1)

None of us is indispensable. This verse reminds us that generations of wonderful believers and followers of Christ come and go, but God's Word stands, and his plan continues. He speaks to the new generation, raises up new leaders, fulfills his promises in their appointed seasons, and continues to make every day of "history" His-story.

Read PSALM 90, where Moses himself reminds us of this. We are grass, short-lived and quickly forgotten. His Word abides forever. That's why we must acknowledge him as our dwelling place in every generation. That's why we must pray for him to make firm the works of our hands.
