Watch for Words of Hope on Mondays and Thursdays! Be encouraged, by these words from Pastor Larry:
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT
The Israelites faced uncertainty before they crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land. There was a change in leadership from Moses to Joshua. The people had become dependent on Moses, and thus he prepared them for his departure. In the above mentioned verse, Moses shares some great reminders, certainly applicable to us today.
Do we live and act as if God really does go ahead of us? Or do we limp along in uncharted territory, wondering what will happen? Are we paralyzed by fear, or do we put our trust in the Lord and have faith in his plan for our lives?
Take comfort today in knowing that our Mighty, All-Powerful God goes before us. If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
