Joshua was a warrior for God. He was a man who trusted the Lord he served, and that trust gave him courage to face anything. His name means “Jehovah is salvation,” and his life reflects the truth of his name. He had been one of the many who had been a captive in Egypt, and when Moses led the Israelites out of captivity, Joshua became a great leader among the
