Do you ever sit back in amazement of God’s promises? I mean in a world of uncertainty, we have such certainty. From Genesis to Revelation he gives us constant assurance, of the great God we serve. He is ruler of the universe, yet he is working in our every circumstance. What a God we serve! One of my favorite promises is the fact that no mater what we face, he will never leave us or forsake us. People will walk out of your life but he is your partner for life. Let us just pause a moment and thank him for his great faithfulness. Thank You Jesus!
Be Strong and Courageous. Do not be afraid. For the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” –Deut. 31:6
Throughout his book of promises, he repeats over and over, Be Strong and Courageous. In Joshua alone, in just one chapter, you see several times God repeated this instruction. It wasn’t an option. Life will seem overwhelming at times. We know this. Are we supposed to do as we’re told and “buck up” in our own strength? Not so. God is telling us that he always has our back. It might look impossible. It might seem overwhelming. The enemy tries to make us doubt that he is there but he always is. Do not be afraid.
Courage doesn’t mean you don’t run into fearful circumstances. It means you do run into fearful circumstances, and you do it with confidence and without fear. You do it with resolution. It’s a quality that God gives to us as we trust in Him, but it’s not an option for the servant of the Lord. God didn’t say to Joshua, “I hope you will be strong and courageous. I hope you won’t be frightened.” God says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.”
Be Brave loved ones. He is fighting our battles, every single one. All we need to do is trust our great defender. Trust is the key. Giving up fear, control and anxiety to him is our choice.
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” – Isaiah 41:13
We can’t survive on girl power. We need God power.
