1. The call to be strong and courageous

The call to be strong and courageous is repeated three times in this passage, emphasizing its importance. The reason for this call is that Joshua has a difficult task ahead of him: leading the people of Israel in conquering the land that God had promised to give them.

God reminds Joshua that his success in this task is dependent on his obedience to the law that Moses had given to the people. He instructs Joshua to meditate on the law day and night, to keep it in his mouth, and to be careful to do everything that is written in it.

2. We can have the confidence 

God also reassures Joshua that he will be with him wherever he goes. Joshua does not need to be afraid or dismayed, because God is with him and will give him the strength and courage he needs to fulfill his mission.

This passage is a powerful reminder that God calls his people to be strong and courageous in the face of difficult tasks and challenges. By meditating on and obeying God's word, and by relying on his presence and strength, we can have the confidence we need to face whatever lies ahead.

3. We need to be strong and courageous

Courage is an essential virtue in every person. It is a quality that makes people strong. We admire courage in heroes because it allows us to live inspired lives. Our definition of courage is the willingness to face danger without fear. 

Without strength of will, a person can become physically and emotionally sick from making poor decisions. Essentially, we must choose to be strong and courageous on both a mental and physical level.
  • Battle against sin (2 Cor. 10:4; Eph. 6:10-17)
  • Need to be strong in the faith (1 Cor. 16:13)
  • Oftentimes have to make tough decisions (Lk. 14:25-33)
  • God is for us (Rom. 8:31; Heb. 13:5)
