BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS by Kosiom Nkocho
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:28). He say, fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10). My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. (2nd cor 12:9). Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. (Deut 31:6).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. (Josh 1:9-11). No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.(1 Cor 10:13). God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.(psalms 46:1-3). For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. (1 Tim 1:7). So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. (2 Cor 4:16-18). I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.(psalms 16:8). He is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.( Exo 15:2 ), and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.(ph 4:13).For He is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?(psalms27:1).
