Scripture Reading: Joshua 1:9

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9 serves as a powerful reminder of God’s command to be strong and courageous, grounded in the assurance of His abiding presence. As we reflect on this scripture, the Fourth Week of Lent prompts us to evaluate our responses to challenges. How often do fear and dismay hinder our courage? Lent invites us to embrace the command to be strong, for the Lord our God is with us wherever we go.

Moreover, Joshua 1:9 encourages us to trust in God’s promises. The call to courage is not based on our own abilities but on the unchanging nature of our God. The Fifth Sunday of Lent beckons us to rely on His strength and live with confidence in His presence. May this scripture fortify our hearts with courage, dispelling fear and dismay as we journey through the challenges of life.


Mighty God, as we contemplate Joshua 1:9, grant us the strength and courage to face challenges. May fear and dismay give way to the confidence that your abiding presence goes with us wherever we go. In this Lenten season, help us to trust in your promises, living boldly in the assurance that you are our God, guiding and protecting us. Amen.
