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.

Acts 10:34, 35 Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.”
Acts 5:38, 39 Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”
