The book of Joshua tells the story of a leader who took up the mantle of a legend--Moses. Joshua was called to lead God's people to the Promised Land, but he needed immeasurable courage and deep faith to answer that call. God has called each of us in a similar way; will we grow in courage and answer our calling, or will we shrink away and let it pass us by?
Week 1 (June 6) | Courage for Your Calling | Dave Dummitt
God called Joshua to lead His people, and told him he would need courage for the calling. Joshua was able to lead because of a clear call from God. In the same way, we can grow in courage when we gain a clearer picture of what God is calling us to do, and are anchored in His word.
Week 2 (June 13) | Courage to Navigate the Wilderness | Dave Dummitt
God’s people had to maneuver through the wilderness to get to His promise. We all experience times of uncertainty or wildernesses in our own lives where we’re between where we used to be and where God calls us to. To continue moving through takes tenacity, courage, and deep faith.
Week 3 (June 20) | Courage to Face Challenges (Father’s Day at Willow) | Dave Dummitt
We all come against obstacles that are larger than us, and sometimes God asks us to trust Him even when it seems like we’re not taking any ground. Our challenge: to take our eyes off of our smallness and put them on His bigness.
Week 4 (June 27) | Courage to Pray Big Prayers | Ed Ollie Jr.
Big problems require big prayers. God moves through the prayers of His people, especially when those prayers are anchored in His promises. When we pray, God can do more than we could ever ask, think, or imagine!
