    Time or The-Clock-of-Jehovah GOD required Moses to rest. We also should be conscious of Time or The-Clock-of-GOD as it relate to our personal life because any minute of any hour GOD can require us to rest or be ready to assume leadership as Joshua was given the responsibility of leadership. Leadership of at least 1 me,I, myself.

    I love the spirit of Joshua. He was determined to follow God from a young age. I like how the Bible describes him and Caleb of "having a different spirit". It is obvious by his actions of obedience that he was a man of great courage, as instructed. Faithful to the end as I'm sure his wife was and of strong character.

    What a true servant is Joshua! God give me the heart of obedient to your commandments like Joshua minister of Moses, Joshua 8:1

    I love how Joshua did not exhalt himself above Moses' ways of leadership Joshua built upon Moses' leadership skills and used Moses prophetic words from the Lord to remind God's people of God's promises. Hence, the people honored Joshua and vowed to protect follow his commands the same way that they have obeyed the voice of Moses.
