Sometimes Do You Wonder If You’re Enough?
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I wonder if I’m STRONG enough or COURAGEOUS enough to do the things that God wants me to do.
This morning, I’m sitting on my deck reading about Joshua.
God, Himself, had to remind Joshua on THREE separate occasions (all within a very short period of time) to be strong and courageous!
I think He must have gotten tired of ASKING Joshua, so the third time the Bible says, God COMMANDED him. “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.” Joshua 1:9 (NLT)
Even Heroes Need Help
It’s reassuring that even a great Bible HERO like Joshua needed a little encouragement, too! 🙂
God knows that we’re easily swayed by our FEELINGS.
But we can’t allow the world, the enemy or people who have NO IDEA what they’re talking about, to move our feelings…and therefore move our DESTINY.
God wrote it down for us so we can be BOLD!
“…take possession of the land the Lordyour God is giving you.” Joshua 1:10 (NLT)
So I want to encourage us all to be prepared. HOW?
• Subscribe to BLOGS that lift up our spirits.
• Read BOOKS that expand our vision.
• Study our BIBLES to get closer to God.
• Lineup with PEOPLE who can speak into our future.
Then when God says go! We GO!!!
God is WITH us!
Courage can be defined as: “the POWER to withstand FEAR”.
We CAN go in and POSSESS the land which God has given us, and we won’t be nervous or afraid!
We are STRONG and have good COURAGE for the Lord our God is with us!
Is God asking you to start something new…something that you’re feeling a little fearful about? Be very COURAGEOUS and share your thoughts with us.
