We gain wisdom through the study of His word, and worship Him through obedience to His word. May our worship be an example to those who do not know His word so that they might turn to His word.
Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land which the LORD has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall give it to them as an inheritance…
Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you He will not fail you or forsake you.
Fear can be contagious like a virus, but God can strengthen and protect us from its spread. Do not allow the fear of those who are afraid infect you.
Do not be afraid of your enemies or lose courage or panic. The Lord your God is going with you, and he will give you victory.
God is with us; He is our protector no matter how bleak or impossible things appear. Let Him be your confidence.
Fear the LORD your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name.
…fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul…
We are encouraged because God is with us. If God is with us, we have no reason to fear.
