Lord had promised to Abraham to give Canaan as a possession. Lord brought Israelites by Moses out of Egypt to give the Land of Canaan. Now Lord is telling Joshua to get ready, the great promise is going to fulfilled. Will Joshua be able to believe and get ready ?

“So Joshua ordered …‘Get your supplies ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving…” Jos 1:10,11
