Welcome to the first of Tuesday's Word of Encouragement.
We all can use some encouragement from time to time. You may be finding it had to get all those school
activities done, or you may be just feeling down or stressed over some situation
you are going through.
As I was reading my daily devotions yesterday, I came across this scripture:
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Moses was addressing the Israelites. He knew that he would no longer be able to continue the journey to
the promise land. He left them some lasting words
BE STRONG, FEAR NOT, FOR THE LORD THY GOD GOES WITH THEE!
In verse 8 he says:
And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee, he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.
These words were not just for Israel, but for us as well!
We can be assured that if we love the Lord God above all else and depend on Him;
He will never leave or forsake us! He will be our Helper!
Because of this promise, we can "be strong and of good courage".
We can preserve in trials.
We can resist those temptations, and
We can fully place our trust in the Lord.
