You’ve Got the Power!

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
-Joshua 1:9

TAKING ON THE TASK in front of you can sometimes be overwhelming.  One of my favorite leaders in the Bible is Joshua. I love this verse, as Joshua is about to take the command over from Moses and lead the Israelites into the promise land.  Now I have never led millions of people but there have been many times I felt, “How am I going to accomplish this huge task in front of me?” I have learned over the years that strength and courage come from trusting who will be with you wherever you go.  One day I was driving on the expressway and a billboard said this: “It is not how huge the task is in front of you it's the power behind you.” So today take on the challenge and don’t be afraid. Trust that God is with you wherever you go.

Prayer Starter
Jesus, thank you for reassuring us that no matter how big the task that we face today is, You are walking with us every step of the way.  Give us strength and courage to trust You. God we know that some tasks, as big as they seem to us, can make us afraid and discouraged, but God, encourage us to never forget You are the power behind us.
