God Will Be With You - Joshua 1:9

 

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

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


The past six months have been more than I think any of us could have imagined. The pandemic has turned everyone's world upside down.

For some, it's been more than they can bear. It seems as though they are suffering a death of a thousand cuts. What might have been a mere irritant in "normal" times is now sending some people over the edge. 

Others, though, are confident in the knowledge that, no matter what they face, they can manage because God is there right alongside them. These are the type of people who talk about "opportunities" rather than "problems". They view these times as a chance to show their faith in God. 

They know that actions speak louder than words and they use these times as a testament to their faith.

Or even when their faith isn't so steadfast, these are the kinds of people who turn to God and ask for faith.

Where ever you are on this journey, take comfort in the knowledge that God doesn't want you to do it alone. He will carry you when it's just too much and He'll be your cheerleader when you are ready for an "opportunity".
