Strength and courage
Thank you Father for those who have shown me Jesus and how to walk with him. Please use what I have been taught to bless and encourage others.
Read Joshua 1: 7-9
7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Leadership of God’s people had now been handed over from Moses to Joshua. They were preparing to cross the River Jordon into the land God had promised he would give them. God told Joshua to be strong and courageous. To be successful and prosper, he needed to be careful—careful to obey the commandments found in his Word. It was there that Joshua would find the strength and courage he needed.
