Josh looks at Joshua chapter 5 when the manna stops, and the Israelites are about to feed on the land of Canaan. God is always rolling something away and leading us into something new. Joshua pauses in the plains to remember what God had done for them before they enter this new land. We can see ourselves in this Joshua story. We come out of our wilderness and fail to remember that God provided the new land we are embarking on. We lose sight of the source of the land we possess -- the things that matter -- the things we've been given. The worship journey for this week: "God is continually inviting us to look past what is provided to the source. Developing a dependence on Him as He makes things new." Joshua 5:9-12; Deuteronomy 24:17-22.
