Joshua 1:9 (NKJV) Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
It amazes me how Joshua never stood before the Lord with excuses. He didn’t attempt to question why he couldn’t capture the territory the Lord had already given him. He never grumbled and complained about his childhood or his feelings of inadequacy or his anxiety or anything else you can think of. He simply moved forward in faith. As a consequence he led the entire nation of Israel to conquer and settle in the Promised Land. How do you move forward? Are you aware the Lord is with you?
If you would start each day with the same simple faith of Joshua, a faith that simply trusted the Lord as shown by your actions and behavior, just think about what area of your life you could capture. You could turn the tables on the enemies of your past; on the abuse and neglect and fear and hurt. You can capture that enemy territory in your life; glory to God! I know today’s message is for someone; “God is with you”, in your sickness, in your finances, in your marriage, in your career, in your family, in your single living, in your addiction, in your pain, in your confusion, in your ministry!
Point to ponder- The Lord has already captured that area of your life for you. He wants to hand it over to you so you can obtain victory! In what area of your life do you need to see the walls come tumbling down?
