Joshua 1:9

Joshua 1:9

“I command you be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Reflection:

God has your back. He has your front as well. Be assured that He is beside you as well. Whenever you feel alone or backed in a corner or feel threatened or afraid or put in a seemingly impossible situation, know that God is where you need Him to be. God is watching over you and has only your best interests in His heart. God is all-loving and all-merciful and He is aware of the evils that often threaten us. He is aware of the challenges we face because in many ways, Jesus, his son, faced some of them as well– and faced death! Not only did Jesus face death, but he overcame it with the resurrection. Jesus has overcome the ultimate obstacle and God gave him the means to do so.

If you have faith in God’s power and put your trust in Jesus, you will be able to find your courage and gather your strengths and make God proud to call you His child and heir. All God’s children stand to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. You can take confidence in that Christ will be your advocate and savior. The problems of the world will just melt away when you know that your soul is loved and protected and cared for. God will find a way. Nothing is beyond God’s control. Think about that.
