This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

Scripture reference: Joshua 1:5 (NLT)

Today, I am thinking about succeeding in God’s strength.

Lately, I have been studying in the book of Joshua. In the beginning of the Scripture, we know that Joshua had just stepped into Moses’ shoes—a predecessor unlike any other in his charisma, leadership, and connection to God.

Therefore, it’s easy to imagine that initially, many of the tasks that God assigned to Joshua felt daunting. Yet God always assured him that He was there to help him execute the tasks.

One day, as Joshua was approaching the town of Canaan, a place inhabited by giants, a transition took place.

It was then that God was no longer a coach on the sideline, telling Joshua which plays to execute. Instead, He actually put on the jersey Himself and stepped out onto the field with Joshua as the quarterback. In other words, when Joshua needed strength, God willingly stepped up on the field.

When this happens, the outcome is set, and the situation is resolved. If there is a battle, that battle is won.

Today, think about that situation in your life where you need to succeed and know that it is not possible without God’s strength—but that with God’s strength, success is assured. This Scripture contains the same words God said to Joshua, words I believe you and I need to remember as well: “No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live…I will not fail you or abandon you.” Joshua 1:5 (NLT)

Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.

So today, succeed in God’s strength.
