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.” Joshua 1:9 NLT
We have the ability to step ahead, but God is the One who designs the path for us to follow. He readies us to travel. He carries us to places unknown and provides everything we need. He places our feet on solid ground and reminds us why we don't have to walk alone.
In moments of doubt, God reminds us how far we’ve come. He opens our hearts for His guiding and continues to move us along. He gives courage to remember who will handle our days and provides wisdom to grow our faith.
The Bible says, yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later. Romans 8:18 As we walk in faith, God WILL provide glimpses of what’s to come. He will open our eyes to the love of His faithfulness and begin to reveal His plan.
Those who trust in the Lord will be faithfully led. He will provide PEACE to replace worry and STRENGTH will be nurtured instead. God is the One who will help us learn how to follow. "Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me: for You are the God of my salvation; on You do I wait all day.” Psalm 25:4-5
God will guide us! When we have been readied for what's to come, He will set our feet on solid ground. He will know what we need to walk boldly. He will help us understand when we’re headed in the right direction. We must keep stepping in faith and BELIEVE better days WILL come.
Dear God, Thank you for the love of Your faithfulness. You’ve carried us so far! Help us find strength to keep on going and step in the right direction. Thank you for placing peace in our hearts. You lead us through difficult days and continue to ALWAYS provide. We will put our TRUST in You. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for always taking care of each one of us. We will give You our praise and welcome the love of a grateful heart. Amen
