There are so many life applications and lessons in the Book of Joshua that we can apply to our lives. I had forgotten what a treasure this Old Testament book was!
Let’s take a look at some of these lessons and see how they apply to our lives.
Life Applications and Lessons –
After all of thousands of years, His message is still the same to us!
Success Principles in Joshua 1
- Following the Lord’s whole instruction carefully is the key to success in whatever you do in life.
- Many times it takes great strength and courage to follow the Lord, because you have to go against the world.
- We need to be in the Word daily to be able to know what His instructions are.
- We have to know it before we can obey it.
- When we know it and follow through with obedience, success and prosperity will follow.
Knowing the Lord is always with us gives us a strong confidence in whatever we do.
- We have to be prepared and do our part.
- We have to trust the Lord when He tells us something will happen. Be prepared and get ready!
- Always let the Lord lead you, but especially when you are going through new territories and situations.
- Uncharted waters calls for more of a dependence on the Lord. We need Him to show us the way.
When on any mission in life:
- Listen to the Lord.
- Let Him lead, and you follow.
- Have faith and take the steps He tells you to take.
- Stand firm and immovable until the job is finished.

If you have joined me recently, these daily life applications from the Bible are examples of some of the comments I am writing in the Bibles I am giving to my grandchildren when they graduate from high school. Click here to see the post where I explain this eternal gift idea. I want to give them all the resources I can to use in today’s world!
Joshua is filled with such great instruction for our daily lives. I had to cut out quite a bit, or this would be extremely long. As you read these scriptures, please share in the comments other nuggets that you find. I would love to hear them.
Until next week…
