“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 NLT)
I’ve always found this passage really encouraging. Joshua, taking Moses’ place as leader of Israel, had some big shoes to fill. He must have been overwhelmed. But God promised His presence, blessing and help.
I don’t think any ministry I’ve taken on is as big as the one Joshua had. The challenges I face in life are not too difficult for our Lord to help me get through. How about you?
May we trust God, and be strong and courageous.
