SPIRITUAL RESILIENCE

June 16, 2014

Monday

 

Joshua 1:9

 

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.”

 

EXAMPLE

 

This was not just good advice. Joshua was receiving orders from his Commander. Trembling or fearing would betray lack of confidence in God. God’s formula for Joshua’s success is a model for today’s believer.

There is a common desire within every person to feel successful. We often measure our worth on the basis of how successful we are. How we measure that success is often based on a worldly standard rather than a godly standard. Success by the world’s standard often means luxury, wealth, and possessions, achievements, notoriety, and fame, beauty, brains and brawn.
If we measure our lives by the world’s standards we will have an inaccurate and incomplete view of whether or not we’re successful. God’s standard of measurement is nothing like the world’s standard.

 

 

Memory Verse: 2 Timothy 1:7
