Not sure if anyone noticed this.  Joshua and Jesus are the same name in different languages.  Joshua was also the leader after Moses.  Moses then Joshua, The Law then Grace, OT then NT, The Law then Jesus.  Jesus comes after the Law just like Joshua came after Moses.  It's also interesting that Joshua is the one who conquers all the land.  It's like how Jesus is the fulfillment of everything and how he's 'conquering' the world.  Joshua is an OT example of Jesus.  

Thanks for all the great NYC posts.  Come on OC, would love to hear your thoughts/questions.

In addition, yesterday's reading said:

Joshua 13:1
When Joshua was old and well advanced in years, the LORD said to him, "You are very old, and there are still very large areas of land to be taken over.

-So there was more work to do for the Israelites after Joshua, just like after Jesus there was lots of work to do for his disciples.

hopefully, it will tell me that I am Beautiful to God and His Creation as well.,,,And Loveable. I get so many messages from the enemies of God (evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, this dark world and the heavens Eph 6) that I can hardly comprehend the truth of me according to God. No wonder God had to repeat his promises to folks over and over again, cuz it is so hard to fight the internal half-truths and lies we nurse in our hearts and minds from the fall. Sorry, having an insecure and sad moment- feeling undesirable and untreasurable by His Creation. I'm hoping God will use His Creation to help heal- the workers of the Harvest field of which The Lord says he is in charge of and has prayed for.
