    5. 6. Joshua 1:1-9 <ul><li>5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. </li></ul>
    6. 7. Joshua 1:1-9 <ul><li>8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” </li></ul>
    7. 8. Friendhip with God <ul><li>Joshua 1:9 Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go .” </li></ul><ul><li>Fear can only be overcome when we have a close relationship with God </li></ul><ul><li>Joshua learn it from His teacher, Moses </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. 33: 11 So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend .

    9. 11. Friendhip with God <ul><li>Do not be friend with the world! </li></ul><ul><li>James 4:4 Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?

    10. 12. Faith in God <ul><li>Faith and fear CANNOT co-exist </li></ul><ul><li>John 12:42-43 </li></ul><ul><li>42Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; 43for they loved praise from men more than praise from God. </li></ul><ul><li>Without faith it’s impossible to please God (Heb 11:6) and faith comes from hearing by the Word (Rm 10:17) </li></ul><ul><li>Fear comes from hearing of bad news! </li></ul>
    11. 13. Faith <ul><li>Do not act or make decision based on news or circumstances but based on what you hear from the Lord and do it by FAITH! </li></ul><ul><li>Isaac was blessed tremendously in midst of great famine (Gen 26). </li></ul>

Sin creates guilt and fear. Adam didn’t confess and repent, he blamed Eve instead. Confess and repent from sins. 1 John 1:9 </li></ul><ul><li>The Battle of Ai </li></ul><ul><li>Hidden sins would distract our friendship with God and destroy our Faith, would create fear and would prevent us from receiving the fulfillment of God’s promises. </li></ul>
