Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.—Joshua 1:9
While this moment felt catastrophic for Joshua in lieu loss of his mentor and leader Moses—it was not. This is a moment that God himself reminded his man that "Moses is dead, but I am not."
Being courageous as a man is not a new idea. It’s a vision embraced by many biblical leaders since the dawn of time. You've probably heard or read this Old Testament decree several times before, “Be strong and courageous do not be afraid the Lord your God is with you.” This statement was a declaration handed from God to Moses, Joshua, David, and Solomon. It’s a declaration of trust, faith, and courage in God through the challenges of life. But more importantly, it's a declaration handed to you, my friend. Chose now to embrace God's vision for you.
