One of the greatest examples of a truly successful life we have in Scripture is Joshua. Throughout Exodus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, Joshua is described as Moses’ minister. He was always following the example and leadership of Moses, the man God appointed to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt and into Canaan. Joshua was then chosen to succeed Moses as the new leader of Israel and bring them into the Promised Land.
Joshua was not chosen because of a royal lineage or his status in nobility. He had neither of these. He was chosen, I believe because of some very key character qualities that he had. And these characteristics brought God’s blessing and success in his life – and in the lives of those around him.
As we look at his life, there is an awesome statement said about him in the middle of the book of Joshua. This statement is the basis of this book:
“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.” (Joshua 11:15)
Notice that part I put in bold: “he left nothing undone.” This was not his assessment. Neither was it the assessment of his peers. This is the observation that God made and recorded for us. Joshua’s testimony was that of accomplishing everything that he was supposed to do.
As we look at this thought of “leaving nothing undone,” I am not suggesting that you can do everything that you want to do or everything that others want you to do. I am saying that when you find what God wants you to do, develop the right character, and work in God’s strength; you can do everything that God wants you to do.
