Dear Daughter of Almighty God
Joshua 1:9 (ESV)
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
I really like this promise because God says He will be with us wherever we go. Nothing we are going through or will go through will be by ourselves, God will be with us. When God is with us the answer is right there too.
Let’s not forget the command He gave us, be strong and courageous. Anything God tells us to do He has already equipped us to do it so there is no excuses. The word says let the weak say I am strong, we speak in faith relying on God to make up were we fall short. So even this command God does not expect us to do by ourselves He is right there with us giving us strength and courage. With God right there with us there is no reason to be frightened or dismayed.
Thanksgiving and praise strengthen us, encourages us, gets our focus back on God, refreshes us, and gives us what we need to move forward in all God is.
Thanksgiving and praise wins battles.
Your loving sister Amanda
