Those of you who read my random musings know I am all about self-improvement and growth. I believe that truly living out God’s purposes for our lives means combatting our fears and moving past our comfort zones.
Yesterday, I was deeply moved by a verse in scripture that I have read many times:
“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.” Joshua 1:9
God doesn’t want us to be afraid. I began wondering, if my fear is real, then what does God want me to do with that fear? Our fears are real and pressing. The thing is, God doesn’t just stop at, “Don’t be afraid.” Instead, He gives us the reason of why we shouldn’t be afraid. He says:
“Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
We shouldn’t fear because His promise is that He is with us wherever we go.
The Creator of the universe walks with us. He is ready to show us how real He is, if we are willing to let Him show us.
