Joshua 1:9

Joshua 1:9 (ESV): 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

God doesn't send His representatives into the world alone. He goes before us and behind us. He is with us always. All we have to do is listen to Him and rely on His strength to accomplish whatever is before us.

After Moses died, Joshua was charged with leading the people of Israel into the Promised Land. This would take courage and strength. Three times in this chapter God instructs Joshua to be strong and courageous. There would be many challenges ahead, but none too big for God. Joshua was promised that everywhere he placed the sole of his foot would tread upon it would be given to him. To be successful, Joshua simply needs to listen to the Lord and rely on His power and strength.

Did you know that God is calling you and me to be strong and courageous in our land? We have been sent on a mission as well to take from the enemy. God will do our fighting. We just have to be faithful to go! Don't cower back, Christian. Be bold and preach the Good News. The Lord is with us. Simply listen and rely on Him! Amen?

Father, send us clothed with power from Your Spirit to be Your witnesses. May we take much ground from the enemy for Your glory we pray in Jesus' name, amen.
