Devotion for the week of April 30

Bible Point: Trusting in God makes us courageous.

Key Verse: "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9).

Read this quote and talk it over with your family.
"'Be strong and courageous!' (Joshua 1:6,7,9). Are you? Honestly now - are you?... The real tests of courage are much broader...much deeper...much quieter. They are the inner tests, like remaining faithful when nobody's looking...like standing alone when you're misunderstood."
-Charles R. Swindoll, Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life

  • When have you had an opportunity to be courageous, and how did you handle it?
  • What does it take to be courageous?
  • How can you depend on God's strength to be courageous?
