“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be dismayed, for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” (Joshua 1:9 KJV)
What are you struggling with today? Financial problems, marital problems, employment problems, etc.? No matter how big or small the problem you are challenged with, know that God has not disappeared!
Many years ago, as a single parent, I struggled with not having enough money to make ends meet. After a couple of years of juggling Peter to pay Paul, I found myself in major debt. This crisis left me discouraged and angry with myself for accumulating this mountain of debt. One day while doing my devotions, I stumbled upon today's scripture. The words be "strong and courageous be not afraid God goes with you" jumped off the page of my book and ignited my heart with peace.
This peace that ignited my heart gave me the courage it needed to invite God into my situation and to seek His help for my mountain of debt. Knowing God was with me in the bad time was my strength to face my struggles.
God was faithful! As I put my trust in His strength, He supernaturally made a way for me to pay off my mountain of debt. So, I encourage you today, whatever your struggle know that God is waiting for you to invite Him into your circumstances! Become confident in your heart knowing that God is with you in the good times and in the bad times. He wants to help you to live life victoriously. So, be strong and courageous knowing God is always near, so you have nothing to fear!
"Sing Unto The LORD"
