Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
This is a slight departure from the Book of Matthew.
Somebody reading this needs this verse desperately. They need apply it to their lives.
Of course everybody does but this verse is intended for that person who has been discouraged and is afraid of what lies ahead. You only see darkness and no way out of your situation, whatever that is. You think your future is grim and blah. You couldn’t be further from the truth.
You need to know that God is on your side and He will be with you.
Let me say that again, ‘God is on your side and He will be with you.’
Take that to heart. Memorize this verse so that it’s deep deep within you.
In fact, we all need that encouragement to put it to memory.
Write it down by hand five times and then repeat it 40 times throughout the day.
He is with you.
The verse was penned some 3000 years ago but is as applicable today as it was then.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
