This is my command-be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9

If you meditate on this verse, you will notice that God make it a command that we should be strong and courageous. God did not just command us not to be fearful, He wants us not to be discouraged! When we are discouraged, when we are fearful, we miss out a lot on God’s great blessings that He has prepared for us. His miracles cannot happen when we choose to give up.

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 1:19-23

There is no need to be fearful nor discouraged because God is with us wherever we go.
