Be Not Afraid…

Joshua 1:9 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.

These Old Testament words God spoke to Joshua need to be heard by us again today! We are living in a very troubled society. There is instability all around us as we hear the daily reports of unrest around the world. It is very easy to be overwhelmed by everything that is happening. Peace is often replaced by fear as we hear of violence, war, and terrorism.

As a follower of Jesus, we are told that inspite of all the desperation in the hearts of the general population that we do not need to be afraid! In fact as believers we are promised peace that is beyond our understanding.(Philippians 4:7) Christians are often asked how they can remain calm in times of crisis. It is because in relationship with God through Jesus Christ, we are never alone. Our heavenly Father is always walking beside us. Hebrews 13: 5-6 tells us that our God says  "… I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me."

In the midst of the storm, hear the words of the scripture we have chosen for today…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.

Keep Looking Up,

Dan
