Be Strong and Courageous

This is what Moses tells Joshua in Deuteronomy 31:6. 

Be.  Not “try to”.  Not “work towards”.  Just be.  Let go and let God. 

Be strong.  Be strong in mind.  Know what you believe.  Stand firm in it.  Don’t sit on the fence.  “You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.”  Be strong in your spirit.  Have faith.  Don’t doubt.  Stand firm.  Be strong in body.  Take care of your body, the temple of God. 

Be courageous.  Don’t fear.  Don’t worry.  Step out in faith and keep moving.  Don’t give up and don’t give in. 

Moses told Joshua to be strong and courageous, for he “must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their forefathers to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance.” 

Big job.  We too have a big job.  We are setting examples.  We are under pressure to conform to the world.  Don’t!  Be strong and courageous!
