From John MacArthur Study Bible
The strength and courage of the warriors of Israel would come from their confidence that their God was with them and would not forsake them. In vv. 7, 8, Moses repeated the substance of his exhortation, this time addressing it specifically to Joshua in the presence of the people to encourage him and to remind the people that Joshua’s leadership was being assumed with the full approval of God.being assumed with the full approval of God.
There is power, in the name of Jesus.. May we find all our answers, in your word today, and may we find grace, in the Gospel. May we find strength, through the power of your Holy Spirit. May we find hope, in the promise of eternal life, through Jesus death & resurrection. May we find Life, both now and forever. So many distractions in this world, but so many wonderful promises of God. Help us stay on the path of Righteousness, Oh Lord, we give ourselves completely to you.
