On Being Strong and Courageous

“Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them.” Joshua 1:6

When words or phrases are repeated in a particular story, it’s pretty safe to conclude that these words or phrases are pretty important. That being said, Joshua is told over and over again to be strong. Be courageous.

I haven’t conducted a count, but I wonder how many times that phrase or some variation of it is spoken in the book of Joshua. The message is quite clear: our lives can be full of strength and courage. Not because of our own attempts at being strong or showing courage, but because of the One we follow.
