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.
Joshua 1:9 (NIV)
It was 40 years since Joshua spied out the promised land. He and Caleb said, “Let’s go!” The other ten spies said that there were giants in the land and it wasn’t safe. A lot can change in 40 years. Joshua is not a young man anymore. Aches and pains from being in the wilderness. Walking in the desert has cost him his warrior mindset. And now, Moses, the great leader is dead. However, before he died, Moses chose Joshua to be his successor and take the people into the promised land. But before he could become discouraged, God came to Joshua and said, “No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.” What is it that God has called you to do. Today, hear God say to you, “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.”
Dear Father, You know the tasks I have before me. Help me, guide me. Make me strong and courageous I pray. In Jesus Name.
