What is the last decision you made? Big or little? Did you make the right decision?
If so, why? How do you know it was the right one? If not, what tells you now it was the wrong one? What will you do differently next time?
We’re reminded in Joshua, we don’t have control. We don’t know everything. We should not assume how good we are or are ready we are or what is right. That’s all for God to do.
The Israelites forgot to check with God, twice. Once before going to war and they got spanked! God basically told them, ‘Did I tell you to do that’? The next time, they lost the opportunity for total control by believing a tribe of liars, lying to save themselves. God made them slaves to the Israelites, water carriers and wood cutters. It worked out for the Israel in the end, but not the way it would have gone had the checked with God first. They would have known that the people were lying.
