Have you ever wanted to be stronger, more vibrant, as a believer? Have you ever felt the church is weak when it should be strong? Have you ever felt that rampant evil should be shut down? Do you believe change is possible in the world, in the church... in you?! Joshua experienced a bad start in life-forty years in slavery. He wandered a desert for another forty years. Yet it was in and from these experiences that he discovered the believer's strength. He escaped slavery and went on to shut evil down and conquer the Promised Land. If we want to conquer the world for God... we must allow God first to conquer us.
Being Joshua shows how God uses the circumstances of life to change us into who He wants us to be. In life's slavery and wanderings, Joshua teaches us how to synapse with God's Spirit. Joshua teaches us that God is doing something-we are a part of it, but it is bigger than us. Joshua teaches us how to view life within the purposes of God and gain victory over our circumstances and ultimately ourselves. Joshua shows us that the weakest and the strongest believers need to encourage themselves and be strong. He reminds us, pertinent to our times, that we must also encourage each other. Joshua learned this from the Old Testament Scriptures taught in a godly family life, a community of believers, and a personal walk of faith in God. His education was by words and examples in real daily life. This book is written from a pastoral and practical perspective.
