We trust you are well and standing strong in The Lord! Standing strong in our faith takes courage. No matter what you are believing God for in your life, it takes courage to stand on the promises of His Word and refuse to let discouragement or doubt plague your mind. It takes courage to trust and not be afraid of the challenges you face. But according to God's Word, victory is a sure thing for those of us who refuse to give up the fight of faith and hold on to our courage in the midst of difficulty.
Galatians 6:9, "And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint."
Before Joshua could lead God's people into the Promise Land, he had to shut the mouth of fear and open his heart to great courage. How did he do that? He filled himself with the Word of God! He drew his strength and peace and wisdom form God's Word, not just once or twice, but continually! He invested his time and effort into understanding God's Word and putting it into his heart and mind and then, being careful to speak its truth. His consistency in keeping God's Word as his primary source of life and wisdom caused great courage to rise in His heart. That courage kept his faith strong and unwavering. God's Word has the power to do the very same for you and I!
Joshua 1:8-9, "This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success. Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
Our annual Stand Strong conference is just around the corner, at the end of October and it is sure to be an absolute feast of courage building, power filling Word of God! No matter what you are facing, now or in the future, with the Word of God inside you, building courage in your heart, every obstacle is overcome.
We love and appreciate your prayers and generous support! May The Lord continue to make Himself strong on your behalf.
