Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might." 
Ephesians 6:10 (ESV)

Joshua 1:1& 7 -9  (CSBBible) 
1 After the death of Moses the LORD's servant, the LORD spoke to Joshua son of Nun, Moses's assistant: .....7 Above all, be strong and very courageous to observe carefully the whole instruction my servant Moses commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right or the left, so that you will have success wherever you go. 
8 This book of instruction must not depart from your mouth; you are to meditate on it day and night so that you may carefully observe everything written in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in whatever you do. 
9 Haven't I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." 
Father intimidation is one of the strategies Satan uses against Christians. Fear is a formattable foe and is capable of distracting us from the source and focus of our faith. But there is no reason for fear to master or control us. The Scriptures remind us that: " .....he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 (ESV)  

"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?"  ....." 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  Romans 8:31 &37 (ESV) 

And so Father I say with the Psalmist: " .....I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? "  Psalm 56:4 (NLT) 

Thank you Father for the fortitude to stand for you whatever the circumstances that may  confront us. For your glory and honor we pray. Amen.
