The Promised Land – Movie Commentary

The Promised Land

By Emmanuel Many

For those who can access Record TV, we are now watching a series of The Promised Land telenovela by Casablanca and broadcast by Record TV, 09:00PM, Monday to Saturday, for Uganda (English).  The Promised Land comes shortly after The Ten Commandments which was excellent. 

Joshua is leading a predominantly young generation that, nevertheless, still need to learn more about God.  While Joshua is focused on conquering Jericho, a young girl, Samara, is predetermined to conquer Joshua.   Will she succeed? That’s annoying but a fact in life. 

Clearly Joshua loves another girl, Aruna, but Caleb has sharply reminded him to stay his courtship until the war is over, so he can stay focused on the mission. Meanshile, Aruna is mistreated by her guardian family.  The episode ends as Joshua is investigating the family history of Aruna.

We’ll see what happens in the next episode.

Scripture for Today

“No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you.” 

Joshua 1:5 (KNJV)

God is determined to fulfill His promises.  Believe and stay focused on Him.  God commanded Joshua to lead His people to the promised land, and gave him assurance of His divine support.  This divine favor was not limited to the years of the war but to his entire life.  Joshua’s faith was exemplary from young age.  He could have behaved otherwise or followed a different track, but he sought God’s calling.  He volunteered to serve alongside Moses the Servant of God, which helped him rediscover his calling. 

Not all of us can lead like Joshua, but we can all obtain favor and the promises of God if we obey.  Seeking God’s will for service and ministry will help us flourish in God’s blessings. Pray today for God’s leading, that you may rediscover your divine calling.

God has not called all of us into one role as the only pleasant area of service.  Like in the Israelite camp before attack on Jericho, doctors, manufacturers (you would call some of them ‘black-smiths’) and others, were very critical for God’s mission of fulfilling His promise.
