Joshua 11:15 (KJV)
As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses.
That Joshua was the man of God for his hour was indisputable.
- The Lord has appointed him to replace Moses
- The Lord had parted Jordan River under Joshua as a sign of his authority
- The Lord had spoken to Joshua even as he had to Moses
- The Lord had given Israel great victories under Joshua
Joshua could have reasoned that he had never experienced the many rebellions and murmurings against his leadership Moses did and neither had he been rebuked and not allowed to enter the Promised Land as had. He could have manipulated this thinking into reasons not to have obeyed the commands of Moses. Joshua was of a different character than that. Moses was not there to supervise him and Joshua was a powerful leader in his own right. Still he honored the structure of authority.
- God commanded Moses
- Moses commanded Joshua
- Joshua obeyed Moses
Would to God we had more of this sort of character among those proclaiming themselves to be men of God. So many today believe that
- their college degree
- their ordination paper or
- their title as pastor
frees them to run away from the leaders God placed before them. Moses was gone. But Joshua obeyed Moses still.
