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

Are you feeling strong and courageous today? Multiple times God kept telling Joshua to be “Strong and Courageous” there are times when we need to encourage one another also (1 Thessalonians 5:11) Notice the word “Encourage” means to give support, confidence, or hope to someone. You are empowering someone, this is exactly what God was doing with Joshua at this time

Joshua was faced with a difficult task at a difficult time, Moses had just passed away and God was commanding him to move the Israelites forward to the Promise Land. Problem was the “Promise Land” was full of giant warriors who were not going to go down without a fight. But God told Joshua “Nobody will be able to stand against you” (Joshua 1:5) also he told him “ He will never leave or forsake him” (Joshua 1:5)

Isn’t that encouraging hearing these words from the Creator of the Heavens and Earth? The same can be applied to us, if you are walking with God, then nobody will be able to stand against you, if God is for us who can be against us (Romans 8:31) Be strong and courageous in Jesus Name Amen
