Re:Verse passage – 1 Chronicles 28:11-21 (day two)
Then David said to his son Solomon, “Be strong and courageous, and act; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished. vs. 20
I love the consistency of scripture, don’t you. The admonition to be strong and courageous sounds like the encouragement Joshua received from Moses and from God.
Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. Joshua 1:7
These words are encouraging, yes, but also an acknowledgement that the road ahead will be filled with challenges. Just because you are called to a God-sized task does not mean that you are God. You will fail, but that does not disqualify you from your assignment. You should also remember:
“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
