Bible Text: Joshua 1:1-9 | Preacher: Michael Portwood In our text tonight, we see that God gave Joshua a heavy task, and with God's encouragement and His presence, Joshua had strength and courage to do the task set before him. This promise of God was very powerful for Joshua, but it is very meaningful for us today. Has God ever asked you to do something you were hesitant to do or were obstinate in doing? We've all been there at one time or another. But as we will see from Scripture, God's presence was enough for Joshua, and it's enough for us as well.
