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
Are things going wrong today?
Stop and remember your trust in Christ.
Bring your requests to Him, and rest knowing you can leave those worries, fears, and concerns with Him.
Then, move on with your day, doing the next thing you must do.
As doubts creep in, continually remind yourself that God is handling it. Continue to lift your requests to Him as they come to mind.
We are told in the first chapter of Joshua three times to be strong and courageous.
However, we can’t do it on our own!
As we study and meditate day and night on God’s Word, hiding it in our hearts, it comes to mind to help us through each struggle.
But it is when we obey God’s Word that God prospers us and helps us overcome those things that weigh us down. God doesn’t just want our trust; He also wants our obedience.
As we keep His Word in our hearts, minds, and mouths, we can use it to direct us in all matters and be triumphant and victorious in Christ.
In addition, the things of God will never ask us to compromise our integrity or our reputation. Instead, our decisions are to be those which will honor God and never blemish His character or who he created us to be—His children, made in His image.
Prayer: Lord, keep my eyes on you today. Help me spend time in your presence and your Word so my relationship with you will grow strong. Amen.
