“Now Y’hoshua was old; the years had taken their toll. Adonai said to him, You are old, and the years have taken their toll; but there is yet a great deal of land to be possessed.”
Joshua 13:1 CJB
Maybe this sounds like you today, feeling old, worn out and tired! Realize you’re in good company. Abraham, Moses, Caleb and yes John were all eighty plus when they did some of the greatest things for the LORD!
“Now, look: Adonai has kept me alive these forty-five years, as He said He would, from the time Adonai said this to Moshe, when Israel was going through the desert. Today I am eighty-five years old but I am as strong today as on the day Moshe sent me- I’m as strong now as I was then, whether for war or simply for going here and there.”
Joshua 14:10-11 CJB
We know Caleb went on to take on the Anakim in their most fortified city! So, too, we need to realize that the LORD has us here because there is more for us to do! Caleb waited forty-five years, so hold on, the battle is coming!
“Adonai, Adonai, my saving strength, my helmet shielding my head in battle.”
Psalm 140:7 CJB
Today, understand the battle is real, but so is the LORD and He has a perfect plan for you, no matter how old you are! So hang in there and look for your hill to take, God isn’t finished with you! Have a blessed day!
