Daily D – Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and courageous; don’t be terrified or afraid of them. For the LORD your God is the one who will go with you; he will not leave you or abandon you.
DEUTERONOMY 31:6 (CSB)

_____________________________________________________________________________

Three times in this chapter God tells Joshua and the people, “Be strong and courageous.” When God says something once, we are to take notice and do what he says. When he says something twice, we are to give his words careful attention. When he says something three times, we are to take it to heart. 

Today God says to us, “Be strong and courageous” three times (verses 6, 7, 23). This brings to mind a question: Where do we get this strength and courage? 

Where God guides, God provides. In each of these verses, God tells us this: “I will not leave you or abandon you. I will be with you.” We can be strong and courageous because he is with us. We are never out of his care. 

You and I cannot go where God is not in this life. When we live on mission with him, we acknowledge his presence, his power, and his provision for whatever is before us. 

What if you lived as if God were with you in all things today? What would that make possible? 

What if you asked God for his direction today, and what if you stepped forward into whatever he placed before you? What could happen? 

You and I can live with the confident assurance of God’s smile on our lives when we commit to walk in his ways. What a difference a day makes when we walk in the strength and courage God gives to all who acknowledge him!

I will be strong and courageous.

Our Father, I am weak, but you are strong. I am timid, but you give me courage. I am easily intimidated by the challenges of life, but you will never leave me or abandon me. This means that nothing you ask of me is impossible. Thank you for this confident assurance of your guidance and provision. Amen.

Daily D – Jonah 4:1-3

Jonah 4:1-3 Jonah was greatly displeased and became furious. He prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, isn’t this what I said while I was still in my own country? That’s why I fled toward Tarshish in the first place. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger, abounding in faithful love, and one who relents from sending disaster. And now, Lord, take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

Daily D – Psalm 128:1-4

Psalm 128:1-4

How happy is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your children, like young olive trees
around your table.
In this very way
the man who fears the LORD
will be blessed.
