Affirmation of God: The LORD is my strength and my courage.

Today’s Scripture: Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV 

What or where is God calling you? Do you need encouragement and confidence? Be confident that the LORD is with you. 

An encouraging friend sent me the promise of this scripture to encourage me to follow God’s call. I also read in Proverbs 27:9 today that The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.” NLT What is this counsel? To be reminded that God commands us to be strong and courageous knowing He has gone before us to prepare our way and He will be with us. 

I have been given this gift by God and a friend. I am passing this along to you today. You know what you are being called to do, don’t you? Are you terrified or discouraged? Be reminded that the LORD is the one who is commanding you and He is your strength and courage to go and take possession of what He has called you to. 

God knows our weakness, just as He knew the Israelites and His direction was for us to remember His words and to go and do as He has commanded. Can you cross the line today and trust in His strength and courage? 

Today’s Prayer: Dear LORD, thank You for Your strength and courage that You give to me. Thank You for the sweet encouragement of those You have sent to me. Forgive me for my fears and doubts and continue to remind me through Your Word and Your servants to go where You have called me with strength and courage. Amen

      Thank you Gordon! Thank you for your leadership and example. Great Men Bow Down is a blessing and we know God has commanded His Word to be an encouragement and source of boldness and courage for many! Praying we go where God Himself has called us!

  2. This is like a recurring theme through Psalms Tom. I tend to think David would have “Amened” your thought today. i will if he won’t.

    Thank you, Lord for your servant Tom and his inspirational words. Lord, continue to strengthen me with the ones you have sent to encourage me along this path I am traveling. Give me the courage to keep pressing forward when days seem too overwhelming and it seems like I am going backwards instead of forward. Thank you, Lord for never leaving my side during these trials. A-men!

    • Tom Raines says:

      Amen Debby, thank you for your prayer and I join you in praising Him and thanking Him for always being with us. Dear LORD continue to give Debby Your boldness and Your courage and strengthen her on this path, Your path, where Debby will know Your presence and Your blessings. Amen
