sources of strength and courage

Joshua 1:6-9 (JDV)

Joshua 1:6 “Be strong and courageous, because you will distribute the land I swore to their fathers to give them as an inheritance.
Joshua 1:7 Above all, be strong and very courageous to carefully keep the whole instruction my servant Moses commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right or the left, so that you will have success wherever you go.
Joshua 1:8 This book of instruction must not depart from your mouth; you are to meditate on it day and night so that you may carefully observe everything written in it. You see, then you will prosper and succeed in whatever you do.
Joshua 1:9 Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, because Yahveh your God is with you wherever you go.”

sources of strength and courage

Joshua is told to be strong and courageous numerous times here, but where will he find that strength and courage? Let me suggest three sources: the presence of the Lord, the promises of the Lord, and the revelation given to us in God’s word. These are all we need to get stronger and more courageous as we follow his mission.

Lord, give us the wisdom to seek our strength and courage from your sources.
