“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV
Do you have doubts? Do you wonder where God is in your life? Especially when facing a difficult and important issue? No matter where you are…no matter what has been done…no matter what is before you…God has promised He will never leave you nor abandon you. In the Deuteronomy verse above, Moses is speaking to Joshua who will be taking over leading the people of Israel after Moses dies. Can you imagine trying to follow Moses as a leader? As expected, Joshua had doubts and concerns…Moses reassured Him God is with you. In the verse below, God Himself comforts Joshua directly promising that He will be with Him. This promise is not only for Joshua alone…it is for all believers in Jesus Christ. He knows what is happening in your life…He wants good things for you and He is waiting to hear from you. He is with you wherever you go. Amen.
“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.”
Joshua 1:9 NIV
