Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. - Joshua 1:9
If we are living in His will, following Him, going where He tells us to go – then we don’t have to worry because HE will be with us – even when it gets tough, even when it is not easy, even when others come against us. Don’t worry because God is with us. If God is for us, who can be against us --- NO ONE! No person. No addiction. No circumstance. No one.
Sometimes my younger children don’t want to go to the other side of the house alone when it is dark. They are fearful of the unknown. However, when I go with them, they go without fear. When their father goes with them, when their father leads the way, the children confidently follow – without fear! Our father is with us when we follow His calling, when we live for Him. We can go in confidence; we can proceed and walk to the other side, to the new land, into the unknown, without fear, boldly and courageously. GOD IS WITH US.
