Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for God is with you wherever you go.
These are the words used by our Heavenly Father when he called upon Joshua to lead his people on the conquest for Canaan after Moses had died.
This week as we prepare our children to return to school, and the journey of work and programmes for 2019 kicks into full swing, we are reminded that God is with us WHEREVER WE GO.
That means WHATEVER THE SITUATION you are in, WHATEVER THE CHALLENGE you face, and IN WHICHEVER COUNTRY He has called you to serve at such a time as this – the word from our Lord is:
DO NOT BE AFRAID, DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED my sons and daughters, I AM YOUR GOD WHO LOVES YOU, and I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU through it all.
Jesus gives us the same assurance as he ascends to Heaven after giving the Great Commission in Mathew 28:20 “Surely I am with you always until the end of age.”
When God calls you to do great things: to lead – to conquor – to advance forward – to level up – He promises to be right there by your side.
God Bless Samoa. Always and Forever.
