Today's Scripture: Be Courageous!

Originally published Friday, 13 April 2012.


I’ve been reading the wonderful daily devotional, Jesus Calling. It’s a daily love letter, written in God’s voice and based on Scripture, to us.

I loved a recent Scripture and wanted to share it with you.  This seems to be the perfect message to bury in our hearts during those times in life when we wonder about the outcome of our efforts, our hopes, and fears.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9


*                    *                    *
