Press Forward with Courage
The Israelites are on the verge of the promised land, ready to enter it. God promises that He will give them this land (v. 2, 11). But they still need to fight the enemies and engage in battle. They will however not be alone as God promises to be with them (v. 9, 17). God continually encourages them and us in this chapter that we can be strong and courageous because of his recurring promises and his assurance of victory.
