For this message, it might help to have a Bible map of Israel nearby. As Israel worked its way north through the Promised Land, the battles intensified. Likewise, many Christians find that their battles get more intense as they mature in the Lord. God told Joshua to not fear, probably because he was afraid! Everyone has times of fear and doubt, but if we, like Joshua, trust in the Lord, He will see us through our trials. Please open your Bible to Joshua chapter eleven, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola discusses Israel’s conquest of the Promised Land.
