Joshua 1:9 ~ “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”

2 Timothy 2:1 ~ “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”

Hebrew soldiers have historically been told chazak v’amatz, be strong and courageous, before they encounter the dangers of the battlefield. We as Christians must always remember we are in constant battle (spiritual warfare) as well as a constant battle against the flesh. We must not surrender to it or pretend that the battle doesn’t exist. Chazak chazak v’nitchazek~ Be strong, be strong, and may we be strengthened.

Ephesians 6:10 ~ “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.”

Here are some additional verses with the charge to be strong and courageous.

Dt. 31:6-7

Dt. 31:23

Joshua 10:25

Hebrews 11

  1. You have been a blessing! I am up against some fierce principalities and strongholds in Columbus, Ga and need much prayer! I will be bold for our Lord Jesus Christ.

    • God bless you and I praise our Lord Jesus Christ that you have found this to be a blessing. Be strong in The Lord and the power of His might. I pray The Lord strengthens you for His glory and comforts you with His presence. Psalm 61:1-4
