Joshua 1:9: “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.”

After the death of Moses Joshua, Moses’ aide became the leader of the people of Israel. The Lord spoke to Joshua and gave him his first mission (Joshua 1:2):

“Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites.”

There is a “first” right around the next corner for everyone. Whether we like it or not, life has always a new challenge for us. The best way to meet challenges is to believe in a positive outcome. And if we have given God control over our lives things will fall into place. The Lord our God is working behind the scene as we speak.

Have you ever noticed that God has His eye on the underdog? The Bible is full of examples. Take David and Goliath for instance – here comes Mr. Goliath, relying on his physical attributes and his killer weaponry. And how did his confidence pay off? We all know the story. David emerged as the champion and Mr. Goliath as the loser.

If we wait for God, He will come for us. No vying for His attention is necessary because we already are the apple of His eye. We don’t need to be afraid because He is for us. He has our backs; and if the Lord is for us who can be against us?

As you walk out the door today, walk with God. Rely on Him as you navigate through the day and the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

“If you wait for me
Then I’ll come for you
Although I’ve traveled far
I always hold a place for you in my heart”
     Tracy Chapman
