Look back and be encouraged
I finished reading Joshua today and in Joshua 24:2-13, Joshua called the people together and reminded them of God’s goodness and His provision by looking back at what God had done for them. It’s like a potted history from Abraham’s father who originally lived east of the Euphrates River to Joshua’s time having crossed the Jordan River to Jericho. It’s great to read Joshua because the people of Israel finally get to the Promised Land and it’s so good to look at the amazing things God did along the way and the promises he kept. It’s always good to look back at God’s blessings to encourage us to keep the faith.
