From Glory to Glory, by Deaconess Adebisi Olobaniyi

God wants to take us from glory to glory.
Glory means high renown(the condition of being known or talked about by many people ) or honour won by notable achievement.
Those that desire this next level of glory are people who are hungry for a change.
Before we start next level of glory in what?………greatness, joy(joy overflow unlimited ), peace (like a river), love(compassion, of giving, of sowing), increase( on all sides), from nothing to something to great things, provision(from just enough to more than enough), commitment in our marriages, our study, spiritual life.
Joshua experienced the next level of promotion.

Who is Joshua?
Exodus 24:13,15 KJV
[13] And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God. [15]
And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.

Exodus 33:11,18 KJV
[11] And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle. [18] And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
This was a man that was always in the back ground, known but not heard, he had it in him to be great, he was attracted to the light of God, he was connected, he had Divine inheritance in Israel.
He was always there experiencing the glory of God with his master Moses.

EXODUS 33: all
God chose him to take over from his master Moses
God exalted in the sight of all the children of Israel.
Numbers 27:18-20 KJV
[18] And the Lord said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him; [19] And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight. [20] And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.

Why did God choose him?
Numbers 32:11-12 KJV
[11] Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob; because they have not wholly followed me: [12] Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the Lord .
Deuteronomy 1:38 KJV
[38] But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.
When it was time to take him to the next level, God had to take away his master, his superior, Moses went reluctantly, how do I know?

Deuteronomy 3:23-27 KJV
[23] And I besought the Lord at that time, saying, [24] O Lord God , thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might? [25] I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon. [26] But the Lord was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the Lord said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter. [27] Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.

Deuteronomy 3:28 KJV
[28] But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.
God is able to make a way for us at work, at home, in school even where there is no way.
