Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord. – Psalms 31:24 KJV
Facing big changes takes courage. God can give us strength to get what needs to be done completed. Sometimes the tasks can seem overwhelming, but nothing is too difficult for God.
He directs us and gives us hope. He forgives and cleanses us. The Lord makes all things new.
When we start to doubt whether everything will be okay, we can remember that God’s will shall be done. We have hope of a brighter future.
This life that we are living is a temporary one, but we can have eternal life and redemption through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say this–those He redeemed from the hand of the foe, those He gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south. – Psalm 107:1-2 NIV
We can be thankful that the Lord redeemed us. His love never ends. He saved us from every possible danger, from every single direction imaginable.
The Lord saves us from distress. He hears us. He cares about us.
He knows our path, the right path for us. When we are uncertain, He is certain. When we are afraid, He is courageous. He strengthens us. When we are weak, we can appreciate the strength He gives us even more. His love endures forever. Amen.
“Have I not commanded you? 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 NIV
On the eve of a really big move for God’s people, the Lord encouraged Joshua to lead the Israelites to the promised land. The move was, no doubt, a huge transition for many. They were walking into unknown territory, quite literally. They must have been terrified, but the Lord promised to go with them wherever they went. He reminded them not to be afraid, but to be strong and courageous, and to follow the laws that He had lovingly written down for them.
Sometimes we are afraid of change. Transitions frighten us because we don’t know how things will turn out, and we don’t have a crystal ball to predict the future. God knows our future, and He reassures us every step of the way. Amen.
