There’s a lot going on in our world. I’m a self-proclaimed news junkie (I like being informed), but lately, I find myself overwhelmed with everything that I see and hear and feeling a little on edge. This week, there’s a two for one with the weekly word, as I found that I needed more than just one verse to calm my spirit and rest in my soul.
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” – Revelation 21:5
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9
As I wrestle with everything that is happening, it is important for me to be able to trust the word of God and hold on to what I’m believing for this year. Not only that, I need to remember that God keeps His promises; so beyond what I can see right now, He is at work to bring those things to fruition.
When I started this year, I made a promise to myself that I would be fearless; that I would move forward with bold confidence. It is important for me to take hold of the command issued by God to be strong and courageous with the reminder that God is with me wherever I go. I need to rest in the fact that there is no need to fear because I am never alone. Ironically enough, when I try to operate in my own strength is when I find that I am most afraid.
Until next time…
Be encouraged! Peace and Blessings!
