Have I not commanded you?
Haven’t we talked about this before?
Haven’t I given you clear instructions?
Let’s go over it one more time
Two things to do:
Be strong. Think committed.
Be courageous. Think determined.
Two things not to do:
Don’t be afraid. (The opposite of courageous.)
Don’t be dismayed. (The opposite of strong.)
For the LORD …
LORD is Jehovah, the God who makes promises and keeps them all.
Not an impersonal force.
Is with you …
Not busy doing something else waiting for a report.
Wherever you go.
Everywhere. All the time.
