Worry and Fear (3)

When we have problems, we have two choices. We can become afraid and discouraged. Or we can be strong and look to God for help.

Our Bible Reading today tells us about Joshua. Moses was ready to die. God had chosen Joshua to be the new leader of the Israelites. Moses told Joshua, “…be strong and brave. Don’t be afraid, because the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go” (verse 9b). Leading the Israelites was a big job. Joshua could have hung his head and worried about what he would do. Instead, Joshua depended on God and led the Israelites into the land God had given to them.

The Bible is filled with examples of other people who trusted God — Abraham, Moses, David and Paul. When we trust God, He will support us and make us strong. Depend on Him today! God has promised to be with you and help you.
