God is Always Present in our lives
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
That was great news for Joshua, who now had to take over for Moses. God is telling Joshua, step up and do what is right in Me. Remember I, AM with you, always.
Is not our Lord Jesus telling us the same thing today? Do what is right in My eyes and never fear anyone or anything. We, as God's children, can never be wrong when we are doing what the Lord requires; not the law but Almighty God.
We are to be strong and courageous and to use the Wisdom of the Lord in all our life experiences. We all go through difficult times in life, either with our mates, children, ourselves or our jobs, and we will all have wonderful days of the Joy of the Lord. In either case, Jesus is with us every step of the way.
Hebrews 13:8 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
As humans, we can be very smart and have accomplished much, but never forget to keep our eyes upon our Lord Jesus, at all times and in all things. We can reassure ourselves knowing that Jesus walks with us and is aware of all that is going on in our lives. He did not abandon the three Hebrew men who were thrown into a blazing fire and He will not ever, ever abandon us.
Sometimes, when circumstances seem to overwhelm us, we may not feel or sense that Jesus is with us. Thank the Lord that we do not walk by our feelings, but what the Word of God says. 2nd Corinthians 5:7 "For we walk by FAITH, not by sight."
We may live in a world which is broken and full of sin and temptations, however, in the Lord, we can rise above all of that and hold onto the only absolute in this world and that is Jesus.
Psalm 119:105 "Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."
In the natural, when we walk into a dark room, we cannot see and as such, we do not know where we are walking. But God's Word lights up our walk in the Spiritual we will be able to see where the Lord wants us to be. Jesus will give us His Wisdom; we need only to ask for it. His Word will keep us on the right path.
Praise Jesus. Amen.
