Today's Verse: Joshua 1:9 (KJV)

Saturday, March 4, 2006

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
— Joshua 1:9 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Never abandoned! Never alone! What a promise. God will go with him, and us, through all the seasons of life, through all our ups and downs, through temptations and triumphs, even through death (Psalms 139:1-24). So we can take courage and feel his strength. We are not alone!

My Prayer...

O God who is and was and is to come, thank you for being there and staying there when all others forsake and leave. You are the one constant in my life so full of change. Help me become more steadfast and faithful in my commitments and relationships to honor you and to learn more about you. Through Jesus I pray. Amen.
