Wesley's Notes for Joshua 1:17


1:17 Unto thee - The same obedience which we owed, to Moses, we promise unto thee. With Moses - This is not a limitation of their obedience, as if they would not obey him any longer than he was prosperous, but an additional prayer for him. As we have hereby promised thee our obedience, so our prayer shall be, that God would bless and prosper thee, as he did Moses.

    My dad's name was Joshua. He was an amazing man. I read this book each time I think of him. It gives me some kind of Joy and peace. I am probably going to name my son Joshua too.

    I particularly love Chapter 1 verse 3. I have great confidence because of that promise. There is power is that word.

    Joshua was called of GOD and he answered the call as we all should do!We were all chosen for a certain calling and we should answer it as well as Joshua did. GOD gave it to them,they just needed to go claim it all!But like all people they failed to go claim it all!To this day!GOD gave us his grace for free!! We just need to go claim our Inheritance freely gave at the Cross!!!BLOOD does it all

    I was a young woman of of 17 when I read the book of Joshua. As I read of this leader/trogon, he reminder me of my grandfather. I told him if I had a son I would name him- first name Joshua and second name after him because I could see Joshua in my grandfather, who's name was Slavone (French). Thus, Joshua Slavone. Family tells me he is so much like him. He was an officer and now a lawyer.
