This morning I consider what we’re doing in life that requires strength and courage. I’m reading the book of Joshua, and again I’m struck by the three-time command to Joshua to “be strong and courageous” (1:6, 7, 9). It’s also curious to note how the Lord adds in “very courageous“ in verse 7.
I wonder what He’s asking of us today. Maybe it’s to move forward against the crowd; maybe it’s to assume the responsibility that frightens us; maybe it’s to obey Him in an area that unsettles us. Maybe a reader sits in actual danger by fire, storm, or attack. God says He “is with you wherever you go.”
So we press onward.
