Day 8: I am strong and courageous.

Read: Joshua 1:9

If you were given five minutes, you’d probably be able to list dozens of things you’re afraid of – from trivial things like spiders and rollercoasters to deep, relentless fears like abandonment, disease, and loss. Sometimes fear shows up for seemingly no reason at all! Regardless, it’s a natural response when we feel like our safety and security are threatened.

God’s direction in Joshua 1:9 is clear: have courage. So how can we be strong and courageous when we feel like cowering in the corner?

It’s important to remember that courage isn’t the absence of fear; it’s moving ahead despite your fear. When something scary is ahead, God isn’t sitting at the other side waiting for you to get through it on our own. He’s standing beside you, ready to step forward with you. Remember today that no matter what you’re fearful of today, the all-powerful God of the universe is by your side!
