Strong and Brave

Joshua was a good man. He did what God commanded, even when it was hard to do. When Moses died, Joshua became the leader of the people of Israel. It was a huge responsibility to lead so many people! But God promised He would be with Joshua and help him.
In verses 5-6a of our Bible Reading, God told Joshua that He would never leave him. “Just as I was with Moses, I will be with you. No one will be able to stop you all your life. I will not abandon you. I will never leave you. Joshua, you must be strong and brave!” God knew that Joshua’s job would not be easy. But God knew that Joshua loved and obeyed Him.
Have you ever been scared to do a big job for God? Remember that God will be with you — just like He was with Joshua. If you depend on God, He will help you and give you the strength to do your job. Be strong and brave like Joshua today!
