“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.” Joshua 1:9 (NIV)
God’s people are in want of leaders who are courageous in their calling and not cowardly in an oppressive culture. We are a people among a wicked world that promotes individual weakness by dumbing down education and legislating political expediency at the expense of truth. The wicked threaten, shame, and blame the righteous, but they can not stand against us when we are strong in our Lord Jesus Christ.
To know God is to be courageous in His might, not ours. It is impossible to go through the pages of Scripture without taking away a confidence in God’s willingness to go with us wherever we may go.
Let’s pray today that we may stand strong for God and firm in the power of His strength.
