Joshua 1:9 (KJV) This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
After the death of Moses, Joshua was in charge, and his task was huge. The Hebrew people he was leading were about to enter the Promised Land, and they would have to take the land from the current inhabitants. To lead them, Joshua needed all the courage, and encouragement the Lord could give him.
But God told him clearly what he must do. He was to obey all the instructions Moses had given him and not deviate from them. Only if he did that, God said, would he “prosper and succeed” (Joshua 1:8). In other words, God said to do the next right thing, and then to keep on doing the next right thing until he achieved success.
The same is true for those of us who are in the process of taking our lives back. We know what to do; heal our inner wounds, repair or replace our broken soul ties, and confront our trauma. To do this, we need to be strong and courageous. But God’s promise to us is the same as his promise to Joshua. He will be with us wherever we go in our quest for wholeness.
Point to ponder- Where in your life building process does your fear tend to rise up and threaten to stop you? It’s time to live more fully in the promise that God has for your life.
