Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9 KJV
There are times when what is coming against you or is standing in your way seems insurmountable. When Hitler’s Nazi Germany threatened to overwhelm and conquer Great Britain It was one of those times.
That’s when Prime Minister Winston Churchill called his nation to greatness. He said, “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never– in nothing, great or small, large or petty– never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
His inspiration came from the scriptures, the Word of God. That’s where you and I receive our courage and resolve.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Ephesians 6:10 KJV
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13 KJV
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:11, 13 KJV
