“Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for The Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
When God gave these words to Joshua he faced invading a land of fortified cities and giants as the new commander of an army of 12 bickering tribes. Joshua had every right to be afraid, but God’s encouragement was simple, “I will be with you.”
Man of God, what are you facing today that threatens to overwhelm you? What enemy stands before you that you can’t see a way to defeat? Remember, “The Lord your God is with you.” Draw your strength from Him, because He is strong. Draw your courage from His, because He is courageous. Every moment of everyday, with every step remain fiercely dependent on your King, because the victory is in Him.
