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.”
Before Joshua was about to take the promise land he had an encounter with the Lord. The Lord knew that Joshua would naturally face fear as he stepped out into the plans that God had for him. But the Lord commanded Joshua to be strong and courageous.
When we follow the Lord there will be times we face fear and doubt. But the way we overcome fear and doubt is by trusting and drawing near to the Lord. Everything God has called us to do, He will empower us to do. He has created the plans and purposes He has for our lives and He knows what we need for each step of the journey.
