Strong & Courageous

Joshua 1 9

Verse of the Day:  Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

When God calls you to do something, He gives you the strength and courage to do it. You don’t have to worry if you’re smart enough, gifted enough or skilled enough. All that matters is that God is with you. The Lord has commanded you to be strong and courageous. When you are afraid or discouraged, turn to God. It doesn’t matter what it is, you don’t have to do it alone, He will be with you every step of the way. Trust in God and in His power. He will give you the strength and courage to get through anything He calls you to do.

You Are Not Alone

2 Timothy 4 17

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 4:17

But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength

 

Doing the will of God can at times be lonely road.  Not everyone will understand or support what you are doing.  That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with likeminded people. Even so, there may be times when you still feel alone and it may feel like everyone has deserted you. In these moments you must remember that you are not alone. The Lord is with you, He is on your side and He will give you the strength to carry out His plan.
