What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice


As we embark into a new year consider Joshua's lunch into the promised land. As a minister to Moses he saw God do some things; they crossed the Red Sea on dry ground, at Horeb the Struck Rock gave water, and when Amalek rose up against them Moses held up his hand and Joshua fought the battle. He went up Mount Sinai with Moses, came down with tables of stone, and made the people drink gold-water. God always prepares people for every trial and circumstance they face. When twelve went down to spy on Canaan, ten were bad,... but Joshua, at age 45, knew to trust God. Whatever God brings your way this year, you can trust him. Joshua, just the same, was given a sound charge about the challenge before him. God said be strong, be of good courage, and meditate in “this book of the law.” Joshua stepped into his new year, crossed a flooded Jordan, fought the battle of Jericho, failed at Ai, got tricked by Gibionites, and contested by seven kings at once. What a year he had. Heed the charge, be strong, be of good courage and learn to meditate. We know strength, we feel courage, and we do Bible study and meditation, but consider that the latter brings the previous two. In teaching college Algebra I harped that a little bit everyday of a semester is far superior to cramming for a test. Two Bible chapters read in the morning and one at night along with a psalm or proverb will do two things. It will get you through all 66 books, 1189 chapters, in one year, and it will set the stage for your meditating day and night. Strength and courage will follow super-naturally. Happy New Year. Read your Bible through in 2019.
