Standing in STRENGTH

11/5/23 susan allen


Josh 1:9-kjv  Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Commanded: commissioned, ordered, appointed, ordained  


BE STRONG– firm, secure, sustained, confident, resolute

The command/assignment by God is, in itself, a strength to you

Be of GOOD COURAGE– physically and mentally in courage, confirmed, established, assured, don’t be timid

Be not AFRAID- don’t dread, don’t be harassed by fear

Neither be DISMAYED– broken down by confusion and fear, shattered, sometimes carries an element of being ashamed

FOR the Lord thy GOD is with you wherever you go      

10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,

11 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you (supplies) victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the Lord your God giveth you to possess it.

12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,

13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, The Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land.


2 Cor 1:8 NLT  We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. 9 In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead.


when I am weak THEN am I strong (2 Cor 12:10)


Matt 11:28-AMP  Come to Me, (reach out) all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] (reach out to me, grab ahold of me—substitution is the danger)29 Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.  [Jer 6:16.] 30 For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good — not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.

What’s your GO-TO when stressed, when you aren’t coping well?


 (6960 strongs) qavah  to entwine with Him as ONE, like rope strands braided together for strength

Isa 40:28 KJV Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
