Observation

What command does God give to Joshua several times in this chapter, and what promise that will help him fulfill it?

Application

Am I strong and courageous in the Lord? Do I trust God to be with me wherever I go?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father, Help me never to be afraid or discouraged, but rather, with my trust in You, may I be strong and courageous and live my life boldly for You. Help me always to remember that You are with me wherever I go, and that You will never leave me or forsake me. Empower me to follow Your Word and keep me from straying from it. May it never depart from my mouth, but may I meditate on it and recite it day and night so that I will always know what Your will is. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
