Joshua 1:7-9

7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9 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.”

Reflection:

These are the same words at the end of Psalm 27.  Joshua was single-minded in heart and purpose in seeking and experiencing the Lord’s presence going with him as he entered into the Promise Land.  Though we may try to conjure up our own strength and conviction to live life, this ultimately brings us right back to where we started. But we don’t have to stay on this self-imposed roundabout. Instead, we can be living on the path of promise that He has set before us. We can face and overcome the fears and insecurities that come up in life as we remain single-minded in heart and purpose in asking for His presence to be with us and to go with us.

Response to the Transmission:

Let us rejoice and be glad that in Christ, we have been placed on a path of life that is a singular path of God’s blessing and love. This is why we can be strong and courageous! Let’s keep from veering to the right or to the left, and keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and asking for His presence to be with us and to go with us. Rejoice in the Lord for He is our strength and courage!
