''Have not I commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be no dismayed, neither should you be afraid: for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9.''
There are times when we are so overwhelmed by our challenges that the voice of God does not mean anything to us. Joshua found himself in just such a situation when Moses died and passed on the baton of leadership to him. He mourned for Moses bitterly and felt the absence of Moses strongly. He even forgot that God was with him. Even though in verse eight God encouraged him, he still could not move forward until God came to him again and gave him all the encouragement and support he needed. This time he was able to rely on the word of God to lead the people of Israel to the promised Land. Dear beloved, God still has faith in you. He knows you can do it, so don't look down on yourself; rely on his Word, and remember that he is with you. Therefore be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or dismayed, and move forward to accomplish what God has called you to do. Faint not nor fear, His arms are near, He does not change, and you are dear, only believe and you shall see, that Christ is all in all you. Praise the Lord and share your thoughts here
But remember not to loose hope. Thank you and God bless you
