Memory Verse: “In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them
to your holy dwelling.” —Exodus 15:13, niv
Background: After wandering in the desert for 40 years with seemingly no direction or guidance, the children of Israel
are, at last, about to enter Canaan—the land God promised them. Joshua completes what Moses began! Moses was dead, but
God’s work would go on. God’s faithfulness is on full display: His promise to Abraham is fulfilled.
Just as God spoke to Joshua giving him direction and guidance, so He speaks to us today. He is the same, faithful, promisekeeping
God to His children now.
Reflection: How have you been intentionally joyful in Christ this week?
