THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Be Strong & Courageous”

Deuteronomy 31:1-8 So Moses went and spoke these words to all Israel. And he said to them, “I am a hundred and twenty years old today; I am no longer able to come and go, and the Lord has said to me, ‘You shall not cross this Jordan.’ It is the Lord your God who will cross ahead of you; He will destroy these nations before you, and you shall dispossess them. Joshua is the one who will cross ahead of you, just as the Lord has spoken. The Lord will do to them just as He did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land, when He destroyed them. The Lord will deliver them up before you, and you shall do to them according to all the commandments which I have commanded you. Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.” Then Moses called to Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land which the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall give it to them as an inheritance. The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

When God tells you to be strong and courageous because He is going before you trust Him. Whatever you may be facing how can you lose when God Himself is out front. What a fantastic promise for God to say I’m kicking everybody’s butt that might get in your way. He gave proof by listing the butt kicking He’d done in the past. What has He done for you? What battles, or obstacles has The Lord Jesus moved out of your path in the past. He’s still there for you. New challenges don’t change the promised provision of God. Keep moving towards your goals, your dreams, your destiny. If you’ve stopped because of fear or doubt start again. God is still with you. He’s not tired of supporting you. He doesn’t see you as a failure. He will go before you just like He always does. Just get going mighty warrior. People like me are just waiting to be encouraged by your story of victory.
