As the Lordcommanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua,
and Joshua did it;
he left nothing undone of all that the Lord commanded Moses.
Joshua 11:15
How many unfinished projects do you have lying around? I have quite a few. There’s a mostly knitted blanket, a stack of research books ready for me to pick up where I left off, a few quilt squares laying beside my sewing machine, and scores of unfinished manuscripts on my computer and random scraps of paper – for books, articles, small group lessons, and devotions.

Perhaps you have car parts strewn across the garage floor waiting for you to get around to them. Or you have a craft room littered with beads, fabric, and paper that haven’t quite come together yet. Or there’s that half trimmed hedge, or partly built fence in your back yard. It seems like no matter how much we like to get things done, all of us have a few loose ends somewhere.
That’s why I’m impressed with this verse about Joshua. He got it all done. It’s possible he had some tent mending he never got around to, or didn’t finish the spear and shield set he started for his 45 year old grandson…when he was 10. But he finished the most important things—he did what the Lord wanted done.
Out of all the projects you have going, what are the ones that involve kingdom work? Is there a relationship God has urged you to cultivate that you haven’t gotten around to? Is there an unsaved neighbor you promised to help trim trees? Or a lonely widow with no family God has put on your heart to visit? Is there a letter you need to write to someone in prison or a missionary God keeps bringing to mind?
We have the advantage this side of the cross—God communicates to us directly. We don’t have to wait for someone else to hear from God, like Moses, and then convey the message to us. And He communicates to us in a myriad of ways.
Maybe prayer walking is one of those unfinished tasks God has called you to do. What’s holding you back? Is it the weather, setting aside the time, sickness, injury, or just plain laziness?
Ask God what work He wants you to finish. Joshua claimed the Promised Land for God by physically conquering the ungodly nations residing in it. Praise God that’s not our assignment! Ours includes loving and sharing His goodness and the amazing sacrifice Christ made for all nations, and invite them to accept Jesus as Lord.
When your life is over, will others say you finished the work God gave you to do; you left nothing undone? I pray that will be said of me, even if I leave a few stray quilt squares behind.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:21
