Possessing What God Has Already Given-Joshua 1:1-5

Dr. Wayne Barber

It’s in this spirit of possessing what is already ours, of experiencing what God has already given to us that we enter the study of Joshua.

Be Strong & Take Courage-Joshua 1:6-9

Dr. Wayne Barber

One of the greatest challenges in life is for believers to understand not only what is theirs in Christ, but how to appropriate what you have.

Preparation for the Journey-Joshua 1:10-18

Dr. Wayne Barber

How are you doing in your walk today? Who is it that has caused you to think twice about what God has for you in Christ being the best, because you sure see something good over here and it’s pulled your eyes off of that. Are your eyes on Christ or on those who choose not to be a part with others?

Our God Who Goes Before Us (Joshua 2)

Dr. Wayne Barber

The people are preparing to cross the Jordan River and possess the land that God has given to them. But the Jordan River that stood between them and the Promised Land was at flood stage. This is not the time to cross the Jordan, but God chose this time because now Joshua and the people would be desperate enough to have to depend on Him.

Our God Who is always with us (Joshua 3a)

Dr. Wayne Barber

Last week we saw our God who goes before us, but today we want to understand our God is always with us. Isn’t it great that He’s omnipresent? He lives within us and yet He goes before us. He’s always present with us.

Step into the water (Joshua 3b)

Dr. Wayne Barber

When we receive Jesus into our hearts, and when we begin to turn to walk with Him, we’re entering the unknown. And we walk by faith and not by sight. We don’t have to see the boats, we just trust the One that’s in charge. Anything over our head is under His feet. We are never alone; we are never alone. He’s within us and He wants us to step into the water of His will. We must be willing.

The Need to remember (Joshua 4)

Dr. Wayne Barber

I don’t know about you, but the hardest lessons I’m having to learn are the ones I thought I already knew. You see, it’s interesting, God can do great things in our life, and then we turn right around and act as if He doesn’t even exist.

Preparing for the Battle (Joshua 5)

Dr. Wayne Barber

I want you to make sure that you understand that in the Christian life, only when you’re walking yielded to Christ does the battle begin. There’s no battle in the wilderness. Wilderness is when the flesh is ruling our life: there’s no battle. We’re defeated and walking around confused and not having any direction. But when you cross over that Jordan, when you step into the waters of God’s will, and you step over into the land that God has given to us, then the battle begins.

A Victory in Jesus (Joshua 6a)

Dr. Wayne Barber

Now listen, we don’t work toward victory. Many people think that. We’re going to win victory, shoot, and the buzzer goes off and the ball goes through the hoop and they say, “You win!” That has nothing to do with Christianity. Jesus is our victory. When it’s no longer Wayne, but it’s Christ, that’s what victory is all about. He is our Victor. The victory has already been won.

Recipe for Trusting God (Joshua 6b)

Dr. Wayne Barber

I want to do is to summarize some of the things we’ve been talking about in the book of Joshua. I’m going to call it the Recipe for Trusting God. I’m going to take the six chapters that we’ve looked at and I’m going to put them together a little differently.

Sin in the camp (Joshua 7)

Dr. Wayne Barber

When we choose to live after the flesh, and all of us do from time to time, when we choose to do that, we are just really putting ourselves back into bondage and we become prisoners of our own choices and that choice is basically, “Lord, I want to please me, not You.”

Walking in the will of God (Joshua 8a)

Dr. Wayne Barber

When He is living His life through us as cleansed vessels, then that begins to affect the world around us. It affects the home, it affects the neighborhood, it affects the church, it affects the world.

Lordship: The Foundation of Spiritual community (Joshua 8b)

Dr. Wayne Barber

Israel has learned through their experience of Jericho that when they are willing to yield to everything that God says, then as a unit, they experience community together. When obedient to God, they were able to walk in the victory that He gave to them together.

Failure and How to deal with it (Joshua 9)

Dr. Wayne Barber

Failure can be and is a tool that God uses many times in our lives to teach us. We live in a world that says you can’t fail. We live with a God who says you’re going to fail and let me take your failure and help you, grow you, encourage you in your walk.

God’s Grace (Joshua 10)

Dr. Wayne Barber

The most wonderful truth about the grace of God is that failure does not disqualify us from ever being usable again. That’s the beauty of God’s grace.

God’s Divine Patience (Joshua 14)

Dr. Wayne Barber

God’s Divine Patience. And I’m not talking about how He deals with us; I’m talking about what He creates within us that causes us to be willing to wait upon the Lord.

Christ, our refuge (Joshua 20)

Dr. Wayne Barber

We’re going to be looking at the six cities of refuge that they created and for specific reason. Have you ever offended somebody and in no way intended to do it? We all offend in many ways, James says, and particularly in what we say. Have you ever done that and you didn’t intend to? Well, welcome to the normal Christian life.

Living by faith (Joshua 23)

Dr. Wayne Barber

We’re going to talk today about living by faith. We learned earlier in Joshua that the only way to appropriate freedom is to walk and live by faith. That’s what we’re going to talk about today, living by faith so that we can walk in the freedom that God has given us in Christ Jesus.
