Be strong and courageous

Be strong and courageous. God says this to Joshua three times in the first chapter of this book. Moses is gone and God wants Joshua to lead his people. It’s all about God; if we just rely on him we can do all things. Face it, so many times we get down on ourselves because we are less then perfect, but here we have God saying to Joshua “let me guide you”, “follow my path”, “Do you trust me?”, the promise land is just around the corner. Can we apply these four words God spoke to Joshua to our lives?

Graduation is on the horizon.
Be strong and courageous.

What is my purpose in life?
Be strong and courageous.

I feel lost & confused at times.
Be strong and courageous.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
:: Joshua 1:9 NIV ::
