Pastor Greg Laurie starts a new series called, “Joshua: Living in the Land of Promises” with an encouraging message on living a successful Christian life.

New believers tend to be on fire: excited for church, Bible studying, having a healthy prayer life. . . But then a backslide happens: going back to the same sins, neglecting prayer and Bible reading. . . In this message we'll see how we can put a stop to that.


Joshua is the story of the end of the wilderness wanderings of the Jewish people.

God promises spiritual rest to those who believe in Him.

Matthew 11:28

Jesus promises eternal life to those who put their faith in Him.

John 4:14

Jesus promises a rich and satisfying life to those who follow Him.

John 10:10

The promises of God are like gift cards; they need to be claimed. God’s promises are exceedingly precious!

For years, the Jewish people had cried out for someone to deliver them from Pharoah—God heard their cries and sent Moses to be that man.

The Lord guided the Jewish people with the ultimate GPS: cloud by day, fire by night.

Just as the Jewish people were slaves in Egypt, we were slaves to sin. Just as they took the Passover lamb and applied the blood to their homes, Jesus was the Passover Lamb slain for us, and we applied His blood in our lives.

“Conversion has made our hearts a battlefield.”

Ephesians 6:12

Satan does not want you to follow Jesus Christ because he knows we are in the End Times.

Revelation 12:12

This is not really a choice of fighting or not fighting; it’s a choice of victory or defeat! In the Christian life, you are either an overcomer or you are overcome.

Exodus 23:30

“I will drive them out a little at a time…”

No addiction needs to control you; no sin needs to have a foothold in your life.

“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb.”

They focused their attention on the obstacles instead of their objective. When you focus on the obstacles rather than the objective, fear will always eclipse your faith.

Read: Joshua 1:1–5

To succeed in the spiritual life, you must overcome fear and admit you need help.

Joshua 1:6

“Be strong and of good courage.”

Joshua 1:7

“Be strong and very courageous.”

Joshua 1:9

“Have I not commanded you?

Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid.”

Joshua 1:5–6

“I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage…”

2 Timothy 1:6–9

To succeed in the spiritual life, you must be consistent.

Our job is to be faithful in our generation.

Acts 13:36

Joshua 1:5

To succeed in the spiritual life, you must know and keep God’s Word.

Joshua 1:8

Meditate means, “to ponder, consider, contemplate.”

Matthew 13:23

You decide what soil you will be!

Matthew 13:23

“They hear and accept God’s Word.”

Success or failure in our lives depends on how we hear God’s Word.

Luke 12:48

The golden key to spiritual growth is hearing, receiving, and obeying the Word of God.

Jesus’ blood was shed for you on the cross!
