Strong and Courageous

imageAfter Moses passed away God appointed Joshua to take his place. Joshua had already proven himself to be courageous when Moses sent him to spy out the land of Canaan, but God  knew his biggest challenges were ahead.

God’s directive to Joshua to be strong and courageous was not a request. It was a command. I believe it was also a comfort to Joshua. Afterall, what is there to fear if the Lord is with you where ever you go?

We also have the assurance He is with us. He will never leave us or forsake us. No matter how dark the night, or how tall the giant, we are more than conquerors in Christ. We are children of the King, protected by His angels.

Like David, we can proclaim, “The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear?” Psalm 27:1 AMP
