Do you wish you had more? I sure do! In the Bible, in Joshua 1:9, it says, “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.” God himself actually commands us not to be afraid. Fear wants to keep its ugly grip on me and keep me from doing a lot of things that I know God wants me to do. The discouragement can even come from friends and family.
This verse from Joshua is becoming my “verse of the year”.
What do I feel that God has placed upon my heart? If he has commanded me, then I must do it! Where does my help come from? It comes from the Lord. I love the song by Chris Tomlin, entitled “Whom Shall I fear”. You can listen to it here www.youtube.com/watch?v=0x5aEvl6Zdk . It has beautiful lyrics which address this whole issue. “I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind, the Lord of angel armies, is always by my side”…. That song has been in the back of my mind all week.
Blessings to you. Press on! We have the the one who holds the whole world in His hands. They are capable.
