Joshua 1:9 “Strong and Courageous”
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
You’re a bad man with a strong army! You and God make a solid majority in every situation, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, an infinite army of angels, infinite power and wisdom and YOU. Heck yeah! Bring it on!
Be strong. You have the power of Almighty God at your disposal 24 hours a day. Like an electrical socket, you can plug in anywhere, anytime, without ever running out of power. God is infinitely powerful after all!
Be courageous. What do you have to fear? There is absolutely nothing that you and God together need to fear. God said, “I got it! Quit your worrying and stress. Focus on growth instead, because I AM WITH YOU,” not watching, not on-call, not available, WITH YOU!
Are you in the batter’s box of life with someone on the mound throwing 90 mile-per-hour gas? Ha! Relax, put the bat in God’s hands, and you’ll go “yard” a lot more often!!
A personal message...
“These devotions were written to my four children, Christian, Mike, Allison and Alex. By the kids allowing these to be shared publicly, our hope is that the devotions will make a positive and eternal difference in the lives of other young people as they mature. Enjoy. Rick Isaacson”
