Be Strong in the Lord
Be strong in the Lord
The Lord God told Joshua when facing his brutal enemies to be Strong and of good courage. One of the things God said to him was to meditate in the word of God. One of the very important things he commanded him to do was to meditate in his law(his word) day and night, never let it depart out of his mouth.
Not only that but be willing to do what the law tells him to do. (Joshua 1:8). The promise for doing what the law tells him to do was he would make his way prosperous and have good success. (Joshua 1-8).
The Apostle Paul, said to the church, "Finally brethren, be strong in the Lord, and, in the power of his might. Ut on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles(or tricks) of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood(humans), but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high (Ephesians 6:10-12).
