“Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
God’s people had been wandering in the wilderness and were now on the verge of something new and frightening; they were entering a new, frightening land. Again and again in this passage (Joshua chapter 1: verses 6-9) God tells his people not to be scared, and not to be discouraged, but to TRUST him. As we go into an uncertain few weeks with so much to alarm us, let’s take these words with us. God has seen this before and if we are his people, then He will look after us through it.
And for those who have to self-isolate, He is there with you as well.
May God bless us all as He goes through it with us.
