Wherever You Go

Barcelona 2013 084Remember that I have commanded you to be determined and confident! Do not be afraid or discouraged, for I, the Lord your God, am with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9 (Good News Translation)

Living in today’s world, we will experience uncertainty and change.  I imagine when Joshua was called to lead after the death of Moses that He may have had some questions in his heart about how he should proceed. This passage is one of several commandments and promises Joshua receives to assure his success.  He is reminded of the importance of meditating and following God’s Word, while staying on the path of His leading. God also commands Joshua at least three times to be “Strong and Very Courageous” or in this translation “Determined and Confident”.  It is guidance that we all can use in our daily walk in the Lord. This is not the time to be faint-hearted or weary. As we follow God’s leading, we can walk confidently and be assured that our Heavenly Father will be with us every step of the way.
