‘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 NIV

When would you find it most difficult to ‘act on faith?’ What set of circumstances would make it difficult for you to ‘believe’ faith is enough to help you succeed? Have you ever come to a point in living your life, you didn’t think you would be able to go any further? Have you ever encountered a set of circumstances that suggested to you that there is no point in going any further?

What prompted God to say to Joshua to be strong and courageous, to not be afraid, or discouraged, and why did God have to reiterate that He commanded Joshua to do this?

Moses has since died. Joshua spent many moments with Moses in the Tent of Meeting watching him converse with God and now Moses is gone. Is it possible Joshua’s grief and loss is shrouding his confidence and courage to continue the journey Moses started? Is it possible God’s directive is speaking to the heart and core of Joshua’s internal struggle of the reality and responsibility he is now faced with in Moses’ absence.

Courage is the fuel that makes confidence act. Faith says, ‘I believe God can.’ Courage says, ‘I will act because God can.’ Continuing my journey of walking by faith, post separation and divorce, this post is my inaugural declaration of the application of courage and confidence needed in order to step into and take possession of what lies ahead believing there is something greater, better, new in store for me on the horizon.

Be blessed!

Father, grant us the courage to act, walking by faith, believing You are with us to bless us, help us, and usher us into the fullness of life Christ came for us to have.
