As for Me and My House

20170915_164838

“But as for me and my household we will serve the Lord.”

Joshua 24:15b

So here God is bringing the Book of Joshua to a close. And he is challenging the people with choosing or making the right choice.

He is asking, Who are you going to follow? There are so many ways we can go in our world today. Will we walk with the One who has made us all?

Will we turn to Him daily, laying down our own lives? It is not a matter of praying a quick prayer, and suddenly “we’re in”.

An initial prayer is supposed to be only the beginning of a faith filled life!

Heavenly Father help us to choose to follow you each day! Fill us with faith and hope, as we make the right choices!

Amen and amen.

Be Strong and Courageous

100_5612

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified;

do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God

will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

In this exhortation to Joshua, God has left encouragement to all who believe in Him throughout all generations.

It takes courage each day doesn’t it? God is for us, not against us!

And He does not want us to be afraid or discouraged. You see discouragement will disable us, and we will not be able to function the way we should, or the way He wants us to.

And the last line is so empowering. No matter where we go, or what we face, God is with us!! Thank You God!

Heavenly Father thank You for being with us, regardless of what we face! Strengthen us and give us courage each day. Amen.
