Joshua is a perfect example of how we should be patient with God and wait on His timing for our lives. When Moses went up to Mt. Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments, Joshua waiting patiently at the foot of the mountain for Moses to return.
The Israelites, on the other hand, got impatient down in the camp. They thought Moses was taking too long, so they decided to take matters in their own hands. They crafted an idol out of gold in the shape of a calf and worshipped it. As a result of their impatience, they ended up in sin.
Often, when we think OUR timing is better than God’s, we find ourselves falling into sin and misery. In this lesson, we will learn how to trust God’s timing.
