“Rak Chazak Amats”
I love this ancient Hebrew battle cry. It has launched many victories for God. It empowers you to be strong, hold your ground and never even consider the possibilities of defeat.
Can you imagine if we adopted the holy mindset of not considering the possibilities of defeat in our marriage, health, family, job, friendships and faith?
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.”Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”Deuteronomy 31:6-8
I have an old black and white picture of me at about two years old. It was taken in 1967, and typical of that era, we had a giant console TV in the corner that easily weighed over one hundred pounds.
The story my mom told me was that I wanted it moved so I could play in that corner. Not only did I want it moved, but I was going to move it by myself. Easy right?
She said I got ahold of that big wooden box and grunted with every expectation that I’d lift it.
When my dad laughed and asked, “You need help?”
I said, “Nope.”
The balance between a child-like faith and a warrior’s spirit is an unbeatable combination. God encourages us to live in this balance.
Much Love/Much Respect, Scott
