From Pastor’s Desk:
Joshua 1:9 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.”
Here begins the multiple times God says such to His people. Notice that it is not encouragement only, but it is a command as well. This involves faith. If we truly believe that God is with wherever we go, then there will be no fear when, where, how, and with whom we go.
