Be strong and brave! You must lead these people in the conquest of this land that I solemnly promised their ancestors I would hand over to them.
Joshua 1:6 NET
Encouragement is a very powerful thing. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you have experienced. Everyone needs encouragement at some point.
Joshua was Moses’ assistant. He saw many things that others didn’t get to. He was close by when Moses spoke to God.
And even with all of that, he is still reminded in the first chapter of Joshua to be strong and brave, four different times.
Do you put yourself in a place where other Believers can encourage you to be strong and brave in the Lord? Do you have Christian friends that wont tell you what you want to hear, but give you what the Word of God says?
And what about you? Are you an encourager? Do you encourage other Christians to live boldly for the Lord? Do you share Scripture and other words of encouragement that will keep them serving God?
Be an encourager today. Look for those that walk with the Lord and hang with them so they will encourage you too!
Be strong and brave!
Father, let me be an influencer for You so that I can strengthen others in Your Word. And surround me with those that will speak Your Word to my heart. Help me to be brave and strong in You.
