7-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.
Notes verse 7 — Be strong here means to stand firm and not give up. The very courageous portion means that he will experience opposition in its various forms. Therefore he needs to be prepared to face the challenges that are ahead. The law of God was being passed down to Joshua from Moses who received it straight from God. God was reminding Joshua that as long as he stayed the course and followed the Laws of God he would be successful. I love how God puts it out there as turning from it, it being the law. Meaning there is only one way, one direction that must be followed. There must not be any veering off course. No right or left, but straight ahead. If you find yourself veering off course and hanging out in a shady area instead of in the light. Repent and ask God to help you stay on track.
