8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Incredible words from The Lord unto Joshua as he became leader of the Hebrews. Do not be afraid for God is with you. Words that Joshua could live and lead by. Words that we can live by. I don’t know what events may unfold in the days ahead. What I do know is that God has promised to be with me. I know this because it is written in God’s word. Joshua was instructed to meditate on the word day and night, to speak it openly, and to do all that was in it. So how does it apply? Don’t be afraid. Do get deep into the word. Don’t be dismayed. Do speak God’s word into your situation.
