God is looking for people who are willing to go to new frontiers.
After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, the LORD said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Great Sea on the west. No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. “Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Joshua 1: 1-7
In the Bible, a generation of Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years because of their disobedience. Now God was raising up a new generation to advance into a new frontier: the Promised Land. God called Joshua to lead this new generation into the Promised Land. Their predecessors disobeyed God because they saw challenges which were greater than their God. When they spied the Promised Land and saw its giant walls and inhabitants, their hearts melted because of their unbelief. The majority of the spies spread a negative report throughout the whole Israelite camp, causing everyone to doubt God’s ability to help them claim the Promised Land. Only Joshua and Caleb, having faith in God and not their own abilities, believed they could possess the Promised Land. After the death of Moses, the Lord called Joshua to march into the land with the Israelites and possess the land. God promised to be with Joshua and give him victory over the giants in the land. God was taking Joshua and the Israelites into a new frontier.
New frontiers are for those who trust in God to help them cross over their limitations and barriers.
