Be Strong and Courageous

Only you be strong and very courageous, that you may do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you.

(Joshua 1:7)

God wants us to be totally free from fear. He doesn't want us to live in torment, and He doesn't want fear to stop us from confidently doing what He tells us to do. God moves on our behalf when we focus on Him instead of on our fears, when we listen to His voice instead of the voice of fear. When we have fearful thoughts or feelings, our enemy , Satan, is simply trying to distract us from God and His will for our lives. We may feel fear is various times in our lives, but we can choose to trust God and, if we need to, "do it afraid."

God spoke to my heart about "do it afraid" many years ago. when He told Joshua to "fear not," He was warning him that fear would try to stop him from doing what God wanted him to do. God told Joshua not to allow fear to control him, but to keep moving forward, strong and full of courage.

When we feel afraid, that first thing we should do is pray. We should determine to seek God until we know we have emotional and mental victory over fear. As we do this, we are focusing on God instead of on our fears. We are worshipping Him for Who He is and expressing our appreciation for the good He has done, is doing, and will continue to do.

Next time you face fear in your life, remember to be strong and full of courage and to keep moving forward in God's will. Even if you have to do something afraid, go ahead and do it while staying focused on God instead of you fear.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: Follow the voice of God, not the voice of fear.
