Deuteronomy 31 verse 6: “Be Strong and courageous; don’t be terrified or afraid of them. For it is the Lord your God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you.”
A promise of God, He will not leave you or forsake you, as our doubts cause us to reach for Our Lord and Our Friend, we will find He is always there.
Be Strong; Be Courageous;
Don’t be terrified, Don’t be afraid.
Hebrews 13 verse 6: Tells us why we also can Be strong and courageous, because The Lord is our helper. He is always there, and He is always there to help.
“Therefore, we may boldly say; The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid, What can man do to me”.
There we can boldly say, we are not afraid and we can’t be terrified, because Our Ever-present God is with us in any situation, no matter where we are.
Deuteronomy 31 verse 6; is a scripture that should be remembered as a promise of God, but also an assurance of how much He loves us. Just as most people have a portfolio of insurance to cover things in life. We as followers should have a portfolio of Our Lord and Our Friend’s assurances built into our hearts and our lives.
Psalm 23; confirms we will go through things in life, verse 4 is another assurance to build into our heart’s portfolio:
“Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for you are with me; Your rod and Your staff —they comfort me.”
Be strong, Be courageous. because we have His Promise, His Assurance and His Comfort, all provide by His Grace. No wonder the Apostle Paul took great comfort from His word. “My Grace is sufficient for you.”
In that sufficiency, we can Be Strong and Be courageous, and Not be terrified or be afraid.
