Have not I commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be you dismayed: for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
– Joshua 1:9
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
This verse is Jehovah God’s admonitions and requirements toward Joshua, as well as His promise. These words did make Joshua strong and courageous, so that he had faith to lead the Israelites into the good land of Canaan. If we can listen to God’s words as Joshua did, accept God’s commission, obey His arrangements, and follow His will, then God will always be with us no matter what dangers and hardships, trials and refinements, or difficulties and frustrations come upon us. God will help us be strong and courageous, so we will not be afraid of any difficulties and follow God to the end.
Just as God says, “You shouldn’t be afraid of this and that. No matter how many difficulties and dangers you face, you shall remain steady before Me; do not be obstructed by anything, so that My will can be carried out. This shall be your duty, otherwise you shall face My wrath and My hand will…, and you will endure endless mental suffering. You must endure all, you must relinquish everything you have and do everything you can to follow Me, pay all the costs for Me. This is the time that I shall test you, will you offer your loyalty to Me? Will you follow Me to the end of the road with loyalty? Be not afraid; with My support, who could ever block the road? Remember this! Remember! Everything that occurs is by My good intention and all is under My observation. Can your every word and action follow My word? When the trials of fire come upon you, will you kneel and call out? Or will you cower, unable to move forward?”
