There are many things I love about the Word of God. It is timely and it fits our situations today. Joshua was about to be the new leader of the Israelites. And Moses, spoke these encouraging words to Joshua:
And the Lord He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed. – Deuteronomy 31:8
Joshua was about to take on a task that was going to be challenging and probably frightening. But God sent encouraging words to let Joshua know He was going to be with him every step of the way. Further reading will show that God kept His word to Joshua and made him a great leader of the Israelites.
God is still sending encouragement today, during the start of the darkest days of humankind. God wants you to know that He is with you as long as you are with Him. He is letting us know that even though it seems He is not in control of this world, He is still keeping His Covenant with His Covenant People. So go about your day knowing you have the Great I Am with you and there’s no need to be fearful or frustrated. Remember God is everywhere at the same time and He has already been in the situation you’re about to face because He’s been where you have to go. If you trust Him, He won’t let you down. He is with you as long as you are with Him.
