New leader. Same God.

Re:Verse reading–Joshua 1 (day one)

“As I was with Moses, so I will be with you.”–v 5.

Not alarming to God.  A new leader is appointed.  Life moves forward into a different chapter.  The Eternal One has seen it a thousand times.  But, sometimes, we haven’t.  It is unknown territory for us.  Anxiety producing.

God’s promise in this kind of transition is that He will be the SAME to the new leader as He was to the old.  Whether electing a President or calling a new Pastor, our reassurance is that God will be reliable help to the man who calls on His name.

CHANGE is unavoidable.  No one can freeze time, nor should we want to.  We do, however, hunger for CONTINUITY and find it in the ROCK of Ages.

Things change.  God doesn’t.  What He was to the old leader, He promises to be to the new.  Now all we need is leaders who trust Him!
