Moses was about to die. Before his death he blessed Israel and Joshua. He said, “Like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them, and carries them on its pinions, the Lord alone led you. The everlasting God was always with you. He is your refuge. Underneath the everlasting arms. So you are in safety, you are in the arms of your God”.
Joshua, be strong and courageous for you must go with this people that the Lord promised to their fathers and you have to divide it among themselves. The almighty God will be with you. He will help you.
“The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you. He will never leave you, nor forsake you. Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged” Deuteronomy 31:8
