Day 83 – For the Lord Your God is With You


This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Josh. 1:8-9

Putting this scripture in context – the Lord was speaking to Joshua right after Moses had died (Joshua 1:1), ‘Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua…’ God told Joshua to ‘be strong and of a good courage’. Joshua was a servant to Moses and had seen the mighty works of Moses. God recognized Moses as a mighty man of valour. Considering Moses’ records, Joshua was going to crumble at the enormity of the assignment in front of him. So the Lord told him to be strong and of good courage.

So, sometimes when you consider the assignment ahead of you, it could be overwhelming, but just as God spoke to Joshua, you should be strong and of good courage. Irrespective of the work in front of you this morning God is saying be strong, God is saying be courageous. As you go today may the grace and the strength of God go with you, in Jesus name. God bless you.
