"Be strong and courageous"
In Your Walk with the Lord
The concept of strong & courageous differs from the idea of brave talk or behavior that is intended to impress other people. The word strong (kazakh) comes from a Hebrew root that means "to cleave." Our strength derives from YHVH to whom we cleave, not from mustering manly backbone. The word courageous (amats) comes from the root "to be alert", meaning watchful readiness. To be strong and courageous is to cleave to the Commander. We watch Him, and we watch what He does amid all that is happening. We stand ready to respond to His command. Be strong & courageous; Khazak v'amats!
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

ABible Reading Marathon consists of people or groups of people coming together to read for 15-minute increments or more from the Bible. This reading will start at Genesis 1 and continue through the Bible until ending at the end of Revelation. This can take approximately 90 hours reading around the clock or for several days depending on the length of time read each day. Not all participants stay after their reading to listen, but all who can are encouraged to listen for as short or long as their schedule allows. Isaiah 55:11 states God’s Word goes forth and does not return void but accomplishes His purpose and plan. You are a part of getting His Word out!
