Be Strong

Be Strong

Hi there, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday. 🙂 ❤ The post I’m sharing with you today is being posted a bit later than I usually do, and that’s because I was busy doing things with my family until now. (We got something I’m really excited about, which I’ll be sharing on a post sometime this upcoming week!) It has been on my heart to share a Bible verse I read last night with you today, just like I did last week with a verse I loved from the book of John. ❤

Are you ready? Let’s check it out! I’m praying it encourages you as much as it has encouraged me. 🙂


Joshua 1:9

“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.”

This is a verse that many of us are familiar with, but it is also personally one that I have frequently overlooked. Have you ever heard a quote or Bible verse so much that it eventually loses its meaning for you? I think that’s what has happened to me with Joshua 1:9. It’s one of those verses that I’ve loved for a long time, and I’m only now remembering just how much I adore it.

In this chapter of Joshua, the Lord is speaking directly to Joshua … but I’ve found that He speaks to many of His children through this promise – including myself.

There are few things more encouraging to know than the fact that the Lord our God is with us! ❤

He will never leave us nor forsake us. He is calling us to be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Who can be our foe, if God is on our side (Romans 8:31)? He promises that when we’re walking with Him, we shall never have to fear that He isn’t with us, for He will always be by our side. ❤


Thank you so much for reading! I know this post was quite short – I was just wanting to share a bit of an inspirational Sunday post with you. 🙂

Happy Sunday!

  1. I feel the same way – sometimes verses, parables, Bible stories, and phrases are constantly repeated so that they eventually lose meaning to me! I grew up in a Christian family going to church, and so the phrase “Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sin” grew very old. It came to the point where that was just a fact and an answer to every Sunday School question! 😛 This verse is similar to me. I’ve heard “Be strong and courageous” many times, and it never struck meaning to me because, well, I’ve heard it so many times! Reading this post has refreshed me, and I will most certainly never look at it the same way again!
    Thanks so much, Maggie!

    1. YES!!!! It’s crazy to me that hearing something a lot makes it lose its meaning. That’s why I appreciate being reminded of how beautiful different Bible verses, song lyrics, quotes, etc really are! ❤ Aw I’m so glad! It did the same for me 🙂 It was my pleasure!
