Psalms 60:12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
Now there's a great verse for us as we kick off our new year of homeschool.

Kind of reminds me of Phillipians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Through Christ (God) we shall do (homeschool) valiantly

Through Christ (God) we shall (fight the devil) valiantly

Through Christ we shall say NO! to sin valiantly

These and many other examples come to mind.

Valiantly....there is a word we don't hear much anymore.

It is an adverb that means

1. Stoutly; vigorously; with personal strength.
2. Courageously; bravely; heroically.

It is a form of the word valiant.

Valiant means
1. Primarily, strong; vigorous in body; as a valiant fencer.
2. Brave; courageous; intrepid in danger; heroic; as a valiant soldier.
Be thou valiant for me, and fight the Lord's battles.
1Sam. 18.
3. Performed with valor; bravely conducted; heroic; as a valiant action or achievement; a valiant combat.

Yes, LORD, Through God we shall do valiantly.
Apart from Him we can do nothing.
But with Him we can be valiant!!
