    WOMEN OF FAITH

    BLESSEDNESS OF BELIEVING



    WEEK ONE

    Rahab


    INTRODUCTION

    During the next seven weeks we'll be learning some great lessons about the wonderful way God communicates His will to us through our circumstances. The Lord knows us fully (Psa. 44:21; Luke 16:15; John 10:14). He can use every means available to give us His best, even though at times it may appear that He doesn't seem to care or understand our situation.

    It has been said, and I believe it's true, that faith isn't based on circumstances or feelings but rather on a relationship with Jesus Christ. In the weeks to come, it is my hope that you will grow in this knowledge. As you keep your eyes fixed on Jesus (Heb. 12:1-2), may you gain much in your walk of faith. I pray also that your relationship with Christ will develop even more through studying examples of women who were blessed because of their faith. They believed God even for things that were not yet seen. Jesus said in John 20:29b, "Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed." May this be true in each of our lives today and every day.

    This week we'll look at the Old Testament story of Rahab the harlot. This woman who lived in the city of Jericho was outstanding in her faith. We will study God's Word with the goal of understanding who God is in relationship to this person (Rahab) and the nation of people she helped and became linked with forever. We'll also learn lessons for our own lives that will help us know God better and praise Him with each new day.

    To begin the story, let's look at the first chapter of Joshua. Please pray that the Lord will guide you into all truth as you study His Word this week.


    DAY ONE

    Read Joshua 1, then answer the following questions.

    1. What did the Lord instruct Joshua to do in verses 1-4?

    2. In verses 5-7, how did the Lord encourage Joshua?

    3. What were Joshua and the nation of Israel to carefully follow? (vv.7-8)
      (Psa. 1:1-3, 19:14; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)

    4. Joshua gave the command for the officers to prepare for war. In three days they would go and possess the land which the LORD God was giving them. Write a few words about the lesson in faith for these people. Give an example from your life of this type of experience of moving forward in faith.

    5. Reread verses 6, 7, 9, and 18 of chapter one. Write the repeated words from each of these verses.
      Verse 6:
      Verse 7:
      Verse 9:
      Verse 18:

    This chapter is so significant. Joshua was commissioned by God to take the children of Israel into the Promised Land. This movement required faith in God because the people whom they were to remove had been there for centuries and were great warriors. God wanted to encourage Joshua and the people during this time of new beginnings. It would not be easy. They would need to hold on to God's word and persevere in faith to see them through the battles ahead.

    In Ephesians 6:10-11, we read, "Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil." God gave great encouragement to the Israelites through His words to them. He also gives us great encouragement through His Word, the Bible.


    LESSONS AND APPLICATIONS

    1. Strength and courage come only from God and His Word. How do you gain strength and courage in your daily struggles?

    2. God's Word is the book to meditate upon. What priority do you place on the Word of God? Do you regularly meditate on it? If not, why not?
