Joshua 1(6) be strong and courageous, (7) be strong and very courageous, (9) have I not commanded thee, be strong and courageous, (18) so be strong and courageous
After the death of Moses the Lord chose Joshua to lead the Israelities into the land He promised them. Repeatedly Joshua is told to be strong and courageous. He is also told to 1) obey the law, 2) not turn from the law to the left or right, 3) always keep the law on his lips, and 4) meditate on it day and night.
With those commands comes the promise of prosperity and success (8). I don’t know what you are in need of today, but I know we serve a just God, and just as He was with Joshua and the Israelites then, He is with you and me today. Let’s keep His law close to our hearts, remain strong and courageous through the trial and watch Him lead us into our promised land.
Lord, we pray that you will give us the strength to be obedient to Your law. Forgive us when we fall short and Lord, and lead us to victory over our trials, so that You may be glorified. Amen!
