Be Strong Because God Is With You

by Hazel Straub

Sometimes we focus on the wrong thing. We are in a new season that has new challenges. If we give our attention to the problems, we miss what is most important. God is with us and will not forsake or leave us. With him, we can conquer the giants that would like to intimidate us and rob us of our inheritance. It does not matter how big the problem seems because God goes before us and gives us the victory. He assures us that we will never have to face our enemy alone. God is with us and he tells us to be courageous and strong. The battle is not ours but the Lords. When we rely and trust in God, worry, fear and intimidation flee. God is our vision and provision.

Deuteronomy 31:6-8 (The Message)
“Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.”

Then Moses summoned Joshua. He said to him with all Israel watching, “Be strong. Take courage. You will enter the land with this people, this land that God promised their ancestors that he’d give them. You will make them the proud possessors of it. God is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t worry.”
