Monday – Joshua 11:16–23; Acts 14:24–28
Here’s the summary of the conquest of the Promised Land by Joshua and Israel. Any lessons for us?
“Joshua made war a long time.” It only takes a few minutes to read Joshua 10 and 11 while the actual conquest “took a long time.” How should that affect our daily lives? Our application of scripture?
Joshua and Israel should not have been surprised that the conquest took a long time. Why? Application for us? For you?
God hardened Pharaoh’s and the kings’ hearts (Joshua 11:20). Why? Is it just? Fair? Application for us?
In Romans 1:24,26,28 it says that “God gave them up.” Why did he give them up? How does that apply to us as Christians?
In Joshua 11:21–23 the writer makes a point that there was no Anakim left. Why was that important? What lesson should Israel take from the destruction of the Anakim? What is the lesson for us?
