Joshua 1:9 Remember that I commanded you to be strong and brave. So don’t be afraid. The Lord your God will be with you everywhere you go.
What a great promise: God will be with us wherever we go.
It is reassuring to us as believers that we are never truly alone. God is always surrounding us.
His will for us is solid and pure. He even commands us to be strong and brave. I believe the more we practice, being strong and brave, the quicker we can access those feelings when life turns on us.
The first few times we try to go it alone we will realize we are only strong and brave because God is with us. His presence supplies our weakness with the ability to be strong. Jesus was strong and brave all the way through crucifixion on the cross. He relied on God and God’s promises in order to do what he was called to do bravely. We are no different.
If we do not have faith and trust in the Lord there is no way, in some circumstances, to face life bravely in strength. Life can wear us down to weakness and stagnation, helplessness and hopelessness. But this is not how we believers are to face life. Strength and bravery are God’s commandments- not suggestions. We are to obey. If you lack strength and bravery, ask God.
- Praise Him that He is with you and that He will help you through His strength.
- Lean on Him.
- Surrender your weakness and take on His strength.
- Glorify God in the Highest for he provides all that we need even in the toughest of situations.
Until Next Time~
