9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
The Lord commands us to be strong and of good courage. These words were originally spoken to Joshua as he was about the lead the Israelites to take the promise land. But before all of us God has a destiny and a promise land. The Lord is with us where ever we go and no matter the challenges that stand before us, the Lord will slay and move out of the way everyone.
But we must see all things through the eyes of the Lord and continue to press on in prayer, fasting, and the study of God’s word. There is much ground to be taken and a mighty harvest that stands before us. Fear and discouragement are two of the great weapons of the enemy to try to paralyze us from moving forward. But we must set our minds on things above and God’s kingdom. God desires to do much today through the hearts and lives of His people. He is calling us to keep moving forward and taking ground. When we go forth in His strength and His power there is nothing that can stop us and there is nothing that can’t be accomplished.
