Believing God Study

Just wanted to tell you a little about what God's been doing in my life. I started a Beth Moore online Bible study called Believing God yesterday and it has already rocked my world!  The entire basis of the study is on Joshua 1:1-3; 3:1-5.  1:3 says, "I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses." then 3:5 says, "Joshua told the people 'Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.'"  

Here's an excerpt from the study: "Many Old Testament concepts with literal implications hold spiritual implications for New Testament believers in Christ.  The concept of a promised land is a primary example.  In face, God not only invites us to apply the concepts spiritually but also insists (Heb. 3)."  SO COOL!

One of my favorite lines that Beth Moore says in the study is "My 'promised land' is the place where my theology merges with my reality."  That was an 'aha' moment for me.

Anyway, this online version has been really neat to work with.  I have been eyeing this study for a few months ever since I saw it on the shelves in a book store, but just could not afford to get the videos with the booklet.  I happened to see that there was the online version where you download the book and watch the videos online.  So it is at your own pace!  I would suggest it to anyone!

I hope you'll check out the Believing God Web site (http://www.lifeway.com/believingGod).  It would be awesome to be doing this study along with you! :)
