Transitions - God will speak to you through your efforts

Dr. Roberto Miranda
(Audio: Spanish)

SUMMARY: The passage of Joshua 1:1-7 talks about the transition from one era to another, and how God spoke to Joshua and the people of Israel about the land that awaited them. The author notes that we are also in a new year, with unknown experiences ahead of us. He highlights the importance of remembering that God is in control, and that we may experience losses and difficulties, but God can recycle and turn them into blessings. The author encourages readers to trust in God's grace and mercy, and to have faith that everything that happens in their lives has a purpose. The passage ends with a positive tone of resolution and victory, while acknowledging the necessary shadows and struggles in the Christian life.

The Christian life is defined by moments of struggle and suffering, which are necessary for truly enjoying the blessings of life. God always speaks in the present, and in His mind, there is victory for every person. It is important to cultivate a positive mentality of faith and sufficiency, and to consume materials that promote this attitude. God is with every one of His children, and His good will and purposes are eternal. Don't be discouraged by battles lost or yet to come, as the important thing is to win the war and learn from the losses.

The speaker emphasizes the importance of hard work and bravery in achieving God's blessings. He highlights the paradox of God giving everything to his people but still requiring effort and investment from them. He encourages his listeners to strive, meditate on the word of God, and be generous with their time and resources. He reminds them that God honors hard-working and courageous people and promises to be with them wherever they go. The speaker concludes by urging his listeners to undertake great things and trust in God's faithfulness.

Says the word of the Lord in Joshua 1:1-7 "... It happened after the death of Moses, the servant of the Lord, the Lord spoke to Joshua, son of Num, Moses' servant, saying, "Moses my servant is dead, now therefore Arise, cross over this Jordan, you and all the people, into the land that I am giving to the children of Israel. As I had said to Moses, I have given you every place where the soles of your feet will tread. From the desert and Lebanon, to the great river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the great sea where the sun sets, will be your territory. No one will be able to face you in all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, I will be with you, I will not leave you or forsake you. Strive and be brave because you will distribute to this people for inheritance the land of which I swore to their parents that I would give it to them. Just make an effort and be very brave to take care to do according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded you. Do not turn away from it, neither to the right nor to the left, so that you may prosper in all things that you undertake. This book of the law shall never depart from you, from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night so that you may keep and do according to all that is written in it. Because then you will make your way prosperous and everything will work out for you. Look, I command you to strive and be brave, do not fear or dismay, for Jehovah, your God, will be with you wherever you go..."

The word of the Lord for us. I have chosen this passage because it is a passage that tells us about transitions. The key word here is transition, changes, going from one space to another, making a transition from one era to another, with all that that entails. Here we have a key moment in the history of the people of Israel. They have spent decades in the desert, they have experienced memorable events, they have seen the manifestations of God's power and glory and provision, they have fought battles, they have had moments of disaster, they have experienced epic moments, they have been led by a very special leader , full of anointing and full of the power of God, they have lived with the expectation that something awaits them on the other side of the Jordan. And for decades those youth who are born in the desert have grown up hearing the stories and the promises of the ancestors and what God has to fulfill in the future.
