Strength and Courage!
Scripture reading for March 15th: Joshua 1-4, Luke 10
Key Scriptures: Luke 10: 1-3 “After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of Him, two by two, into every town and place where He Himself was about to go. And He said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.”
Jesus gathered the larger group of His disciples and sent them out two by two. He prefaced His mission with a command for them to pray to “The Lord of the Harvest” for laborers. After they prayed, He commanded them to answer their prayer by going! Prayer has a way of motivating the prayer and opening them to Hear Jesus and obey.
Joshua 1:8-9 “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make you way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 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.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for your encouragement and strength. Help me to go forth today to walk with You and possess the land of promise. Amen.
