Be Strong and Courageous

Be Strong and Courageous

Our family is doing an Old Testament study and right now we are reading in Joshua.  Today’s reading really jumped out at me…

Joshua 3: 5 & 7  “Joshua told the people, ‘ Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.’  And the Lord said to Joshua, ‘ Today I will begin to exalt you in the eyes of all Israel, so they may know that I am with you as I was with Moses.'”


This was especially meaningful to me as friends of our are over in the Ukraine to adopt a 16 year old girl and encountering many obstacles.  May the Lord be glorified for the great and mighty things He will do through them!  A song that comes to mind is an old one that was popular when I was growing up but is so powerful.


Be Strong and Courageous by Michael W. Smith

My servant, now your time has come
You have a job to do
I have a people to be led
And a willing heart in you
So I give you strength and courage
And I’ll hide you in my hand                                                RSCN3092
For Joshua, you gotta live for your call
Take my people to their land
So be strong and courageous
So be strong and courageous
You know you gotta be strong and courageous
So be strong and courageous

Never should you fear my call
Just listen and obey
Discouragement need never fall
Stand on the words I say
You know I led your fathers here
And you know I’ll lead you too
Inscribe my law into your soul
And nothing will touch you.

I hope we can live each day as if the Lord is going to do a mighty work and amazing things through us.  Blessed be His name!
