When you dream about what it is you feel passionate about and begin to think about what it will look, you will most likely begin to see the details.
I like this humorous quote by Stephen Wright, “I went to a general store but they wouldn’t let me buy anything specific.”
Specifics….Details…..Explanation….information….That is howThe Lord revealed to Joshua his call and rise into leadership.
In the of Joshua, Lord revealed to Joshua his call and rise into leadership using the necessity of specifics.
First, The Lord tells Joshua to GO.
Then, immediately after The Lord tells Joshua where to GO, Joshua is told what to expect when he gets there. BUT THEN….God shows Joshua the specifics….the details….the boundaries.
IMPORTANT: Joshua’s details and specifics about the land involved boundaries. Boundaries are extremely important to understand…without boundaries, you will find yourself spread too thin, unconcentrated and weak which will most like results in utter frustration and disappointment, check out this incredibly popular resource on BOUNDARIES by Henry Cloud.
Here are the specifics The Lord give to Joshua: It (the land) will reach from the Southern Desert to the Lebanon Mountains in the north, and to the northeast as far as the great Euphrates River. It will include the land of the Hittites, and the land from here at the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea on the west. Joshua 1:4 CEV
Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity. by Jay Bryan Sandifer
