5) There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
6) Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
7) Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.
8) 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.
9) 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.
These words from Yaweh kept Joshua on point concerning the massive task of leading the Children of Israel into the promised land. There was no room for Joshua to falter in this assignment of vital importance. These very words are also appropriate for us today as we strive to walk before the Lord into the promised land of our inheritance in Him! So take courage, and know that the Lord is with you every step of the way. Also know, that in spite of giants in the land...
He Will Be There For You, And Keep You!
BE ENCOURAGED IN CHRIST! Pastor Virgil
