Joshua 1:9 NIV - Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Keep Reading...
Do you ever wonder if you will see God's power manifest through your life? Will you see miracles, salvations and the obvious anointing of God? You hear stories of people in the Bible and in our modern day who saw the release of God's power for breakthrough in salvations and healings. Could this ever be true in your life?
Joshua was about to succeed Moses as the leader of the Israelites. He watched Moses relate with God as a man relates with a friend. He watched Moses perform miraculous feats in providing food and water for the Israelites. He saw how God partnered with Moses to defeat powerful enemies.
Now it was Joshua's turn to experience God's miracles. But would he have the same results as Moses? Joshua most likely feared failure and abandonment. That is why he was constantly reminded by Moses to be "strong and courageous." Joshua was instructed not to be afraid and terrified.
Wouldn't fear be natural for Joshua? The feeling of fear - yes. The decision to remain in fear, however, would not be natural. It would be a denial of the truth.
When we choose to live in fear, we choose to live in unbelief in the character of God. We believe that God is untrustworthy and will not care enough to rescue us.
Choose not to live in fear and terror. Speak out your trust in God's provision and protection - even when feelings of fear remain. He will sort through your feelings as you determine to hang onto the truth that the same God of Moses is now with you.
