Joshua 1: 7 – “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.”
We live in a day that calls for those who know what’s right to be courageous, walk a straight path, and show a world that there is a better way. God told the nation of Israel that if they walked right, talked right, lived right, was right in all they did – He would prosper them wherever they went. That truth holds today. If we as a city, county, state and nation return to the truth of God’s Word, we will see Him prosper us. But, in context here – it will be a battle. The blessing never comes without the battle; the win never comes without the war, the peace without the pressure. We can never find salvation without the Savior. If we are willing to be strong and courageous God will open new doors and give us a New Hope for Today.
