He Goes Before You

img_7251

“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭31:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

You can face today with strength because God is with you.

You can face the future with courage because God goes before you into it.

The scripture above was spoken by Moses as he commissioned Joshua to take the children of Israel into the promised land.

A nation of former slaves facing a future of freedom.

They knew it would not be easy.

They knew they were going to have to fight for it.

They were leaving their past behind and venturing together into a new normal.

You don’t have to know all the details of what is to come. You just need to know God has called you to it and he will give you what you need, when you need it, to live it.

Rest well, stop worrying and meet the battle head on to take possession of God’s promised land for you.

What is your next step?

What will be your new normal? 

What will you have to fight once you get there?
