Joshua 1:6-9 The Big Idea: God commands us to be strong. How in the heck do I “BE(COME) STRONG?” Three ways to Be Strong: 1. Repetition ● KEEP SPEAKING ALOUD THE WORD OF GOD. ● V.8 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your mouth; 2. Discipline ○ Obedience ○ Joshua 1: 7 Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 3. Nutrition ○ Meditate on it day and night. ○ You will meditate - God Ephesians 6:10- Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 1 Corinthians 16:13- Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith , be courageous; be strong. Go back to TRUTH. It is a COMMAND. Psalm 27:14 Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Need inspiration? Who is the “Moses” in your life? Joshua 1:5b - “…as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you.” “God was with __________, so He will be with me.” Do-nots: ● Do not be TERRIFIED. ● Do not be DISCOURAGED. ● Do not TURN to the right or left. Hebrews 12:1b-3 And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
