"Be Strong"

Welcome to the first of Tuesday's Word of Encouragement. 

We all can use some encouragement from time to time.  You may be finding it had to get all those school 
activities done, or you may be just feeling down or stressed over some situation 
you are going through.

As I was reading my daily devotions yesterday, I came across this scripture:

Deuteronomy 31:6

 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 

 Moses was addressing the Israelites.   He knew that he would no longer be able to continue the journey to 
the promise land.   He left them some lasting words
of encouragement.  


In verse 8 he says:  

And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee, he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.

These words were not just for Israel, but for us as well!

We can be assured that if we love the Lord God above all else and depend on Him;
He will never leave or forsake us! He will be our Helper!

Because of this promise, we can  "be strong and of good courage".
We can  preserve  in trials. 
We can resist those temptations, and 
We can fully place our trust in the Lord.


  1. and a great perspective to start the New year and pass on to our children! I am your newest follower.

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
