Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest (Joshua 1:7).
Poised to lead the nation into the Promised Land, Joshua was graced with a tremendous preparatory speech from God Himself. Yet, the directives are of great value to every Christian.
Let us determine today to:
(1) be strong—manifest spiritual and moral strength;
(2) be very courageous—show fixed determination rather than fear in facing life’s challenges; and
(3) strive to obey God’s law every day.
