Message by Pastor Brian Lee

Text: Joshua 1:3-6, Joshua 4:19-24

As I was preparing for today’s message, I was trying think of what are some things that people usually think about when it comes to this time of the year. And usually the first thing that people tends to talk to each other about especially in fellowship or a community group is about New Year’s resolutions. And this sometimes is a time where people go and share about their experiences, and how they are energized about what something they like to change or transform for the new year. But it’s also a time when you come into a sense of discouragement or embarrassment thinking oh I tried to be more fit or I tried to get the bad habits out of the way, and by February or March, you already forgot what you’re trying to set out to do and you end up falling back into the old ways. Even for the past 3000 years, things have not changed much. If we look at today’s passage in Joshua, the same struggle happens to the Israelites, when they were going around the desert, figuring out where God’s plan is next for them.
