LEADERSHIP TRAINING MEDITATION
SEPTEMBER 2018
BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS

Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV)
 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Main Idea—
If you are willing to seek God as the source for direction in your life, God won’t let you down. 

Scriptural Context—
• The Israelites were informed of a huge change that was ahead of them—Moses, the man who had led them through thick and thin, would no longer be their leader.
• Moses, however, assures the people that God will go ahead of them and continue to be with them.
• God also tells the new leader, Joshua, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Joshua 1:5)

Leadership Lesson—
• Leaders need encouragement too—Moses’ encouragement of Joshua helped him have greater confidence in God.
• No one is indispensable, change happens, but while the opportunity is yet available, be faithful in serving as God leads.
• Leaders are not perfect, only forgiven.

Life Application—
• Yes, changing circumstances can be intimidating, but God does not want us to live in fear.
• Being in the right place at the right time…some call it luck, others call it fate, but for believers, it could only be God!
• We have a God who will never desert us, especially during those most difficult moments.
