Jos. 1:3 “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.”
One of the first things we read in the book of Joshua is that God had given the sons of Israel the Promised Land, but they still needed to personally place their foot on that land for it to be theirs. This is highly symbolic for our lives as Christians for although God “has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms” (Eph. 1:3), like Israel, we need to place our foot upon these things by faith to experience the benefit of that blessing.
All born again Christians have been given a “gift of righteousness” which is said to enable us to ‘reign in life’ (Rom 5:17) Yet, so many Christians won’t apply faith to this and count it as theirs! Instead they live without the peace and rest that comes from this blessing even though it has been given to them as a free gift. This is the sort of picture that is presented to us in Joshua here that God has given us “The Land” but the absolute need is to daily apply these things by faith!
