Growing in Confidence and Courage

In review of Deuteronomy 31:6 it says, “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord you God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Bottom Line:
You can be determined, confident and without fear. For the Lord your God will go before you. He will not abandon you.

What this means to me:
Because God goes with me, I can  be strong, courageous, determined and confident. There is no reason for me to be afraid, for He has promised to never fail or abandon me.

It is not what others say about me that defines me, rather It is what God says that really defines me.

I should never let anyone paint me into someone that I’m not. I have been set free in Jesus’ name. God is good all the time. His mercies endure to all generations. There is no need for me to live under the shadow of a lie.

Allowing others to control my life, will only lead to a miserable existence. This is not the joy-filled life that God has in mind for me. He can silence your enemies and send them packing. There is no need for me to live under a dark cloud created by misguided fools.

I can square my shoulders and hold my head up high! God has great things in store for me. He believes in me. He wants my very best. He goes with me around every turn. As I follow Him, I can expect His blessing and know that His favor is mine, no matter what others are saying.

So, in summary, I should wait on the Lord and be of good courage! For I was created to do great things for the Kingdom.

Life is truly great! I was blessed with a grandson this past weekend. He was born June 17th at 4:38 am. I was able to hold him for a few hours while he slept. He is so precious. I thank God for bringing Him into the world safely.
