    Joshua received his call from God to lead the Children of Israel into the Promised Land,after the death of Moses (Joshua 1:1-2)
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Wondered how much Joshua remaining in the tent of meeting played in his call.

    "And the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. Moses returned to the camp, but his minister Joshua son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the [temporary prayer] tent." Exo 33:11

    We already know why they went there "Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the Lord went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp." v 7

    It was open to "every one" but Joshua went to that tent and remained.

    Joshua was the minister of Moses. He ministered to the needs of Moses. This was a good training ground for his future ministry.

    'Be strong and of good courage,for to this people,you shall divide as an inheritance the land to which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous,that you may observe to do according to all the law,which Moses,my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or the left that you may prosper wherever you go' (Joshua 1:6-7)

    Joshua prepared the Israelites to cross the River Jordan after three days and to go in to possess the land promised.

    'Your wives,your children and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan,but all your fighting men,fully armed,must cross over ahead of your brothers. You are to help your brothers until the LORD gives them rest,as He has done for you and until they too have taken possession of the land that the LORD your God is giving them. After that you may go back and occupy your own land,which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you east of the Jordan towards the sunrise' (Joshua 1:14-15)
