God’s WORDS of Encouragement
The WORD of Purpose.
Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. Joshua 1:6 (NLT)
It was the WORDS of God that gave purpose to Joshua and it’s God’s Word that still speaks and calls us today.
When we are in the Word of God it has the power to speak to our purpose for life.
The WORD of Promise.
Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. 8 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. Joshua 1:7-8 (NLT)

The WORD of Presence.
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (NLT)
God’s Presence gave Joshua Courage, and it can give us Courage Today.
You MAY not know where God is, but...He KNOWS WHERE YOU ARE!
