"No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Be strong and courageous."
(JOSHUA 1:5-6A)

Joshua 1:1-9
Just imagine the sense of relief Joshua must have felt being assured that for the rest of his life he would be safe and never forsaken. God commissioned Joshua to lead His people after the death of Moses. His charge is not just for Joshua; it is for all of God’s people. Hear His assurance to you:


First, the Lord is always with you in all of your weaknesses. When you’re afraid or in a new, challenging situation where your natural talents are stretched beyond their ability, the Lord is there to give you strength.


Also, the Lord is the strong and courageous One. We can take heart because He promised to be with us. Our own strength is not sufficient, but His is!


In both passages of commission, the Lord commanded Joshua and now us to “Go and be faithful to what I ask you to do no matter how challenging the task or daunting the opposition. I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Praise the Lord that our Joshua – our Savior and deliverer – was faithful to the command of His heavenly Father to go and save the world!
