“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or be discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

These words were spoken to Joshua as he assumed leadership from Moses and was preparing to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land. He had a tremendous responsibility and huge task that he could not do on his own. He needed to rely on God. This charge from God to Joshua is very relevant to us today.

God places us where we are for a reason. God had a plan for Joshua’s life and He has a plan for ours. Our students are in school to learn and to be a missionary to their campuses. We are placed in our workplace to not only make a living, but to be an example of Christ to those around us. We were created for purpose.

God will equip us for what He has for us. God didn’t place Joshua in a position of leadership among Israel without equipping him. God will give us what we need. Often times we have no idea what God could do through us because we never put ourselves in a position to know. We have to trust in Him. Fear and discouragement are not from God. Look at our situations as opportunities to proclaim Jesus.

God is with us. Wherever we go, we are not alone. These words that God spoke to Joshua bring great comfort. As students prepare for new schools, God is with them. As we go to work, God is with us. Just as God promised Joshua, He will be with us wherever we go.

I am so thankful for a faithful God. Let us go with confidence into our world each day looking for the opportunity to be used by Him.
