After Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, they came to the edge of the Promised Land. As a preparatory step to entering the land, Moses sent twelve spies to learn how best to conquer.
The spies brought back news that the land was as good as God had promised.
However, ten of the spies reported that there were giants in the land and that they would not be victorious in the battle. They had no faith in the God who had miraculously delivered them from Egypt.
But, the two spies who trusted the Lord, Joshua and Caleb, were the only two adults who entered the Promised Land forty years later.
Joshua became the leader of Israel because of his faith…. and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat… (Joshua 6:20)
He was the general who guided Israel in their victorious battles with the inhabitants of the land.
When the walls of Jericho fell, it was because Joshua trusted God and His Word. Joshua led the nation of Israel as a man of faith.
The Joshua Bible Story of Faith can be found in the Old Testament books of Exodus, Numbers and Joshua.
