There are no enemies to your growth in grace, or to your

Remember, “The Lord said to Joshua, ‘Do not be afraid of

11:6). Also recall the fact that when you resist your enemies,
they “will flee from you” (James 4:7). And remember what
Joshua said to the people: “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Be strong and courageous” (Josh. 10:25). The Lord
is with you,“mighty men of valour” (Josh. 1:14 KJV), and you
