“Be strong and brave!” [Josh 1:18]
The Lord delivers and vindicates me! I fear no one! The Lord protects my life! I am afraid of no one! He gives strength to those who are tired; to the ones who lack power, he gives renewed energy. Even youths get tired and weary; even strong young men clumsily stumble. But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired. My flesh and my heart may grow weak, but God always protects my heart and gives me stability.
If God is for us, who can be against us? The Lord is on my side, I am not afraid! What can people do to me? By your power we will drive back our enemies; by your strength we will trample down our foes! We have complete victory through him who loved us!
“Get up and begin the work! May the Lord be with you!”
