Be strong and courageous



(Thomas Brooks, "Heaven on Earth" 1667)

God is . . .
     glorious in His power,
     wonderful in His counsel,
     infinite in His mercy,
     precious in His goodness,
     rich in His grace,
     unsearchable in His understanding.
" I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Be strong and of a good courage." Joshua 1:5-6

When God puts His people upon weighty services, He
assures them of His presence, and of His assistance.
He assures them that He will stand by them, and
strengthen them, and support them, and uphold
them. He assures them that . . .
     His power should be theirs to defend them,
     His wisdom should be theirs to direct them,
     His goodness should be theirs to supply them,
     His grace should be theirs to heal them,
     His mercy should be theirs to pardon them,
     His joy should be theirs to strengthen them,
     His promise should be theirs to cheer them,
     His Spirit should be theirs to lead them.
