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. Joshua 1:5
When Moses passed away, God had anointed Joshua to take over as the leader of the Israelites. The words that God shares with Joshua are very powerful and inspiring. Notice he tells Joshua three times to Be Strong and Courageous.
Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them. Joshua 1:6
God was encouraging and empowering Joshua through his words, as God spoke the Heavens and Earth into existence, he also can speak life and victory in You.
“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. Joshua 1:7
Notice God teaches Joshua obey Gods laws and you will be successful wherever you go. This same principle still applies today, when we follow Gods will and not our own will he will reward us in due season.
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. Joshua 1:8
The Word of God is a double edge sword, it has supernatural power. That’s why its important to read and meditate on God’s word daily. When you speak the Word of God it unleashes the Power of The Holy Spirit.
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
God has not giving us a Spirit of Fear but of Courage. Its important to Trust in The Lord because God has promised he won’t leave us or forsake us in Jesus Name Amen
