We all face challenges just about every day, large and smaller. Tests at college, sports matches, difficult scenarios with our mates, attempting to juggle all our activities and every little thing on our to do lists – occasionally just obtaining out of bed on a cold, dark Monday morning is a challenge! So how can we preserve smiling and reside how God desires us when we really feel overwhelmed by what lies ahead?
In the book of Joshua, we see a terrific instance of God calling Joshua to take on a enormous challenge. God asked Joshua to lead God’s individuals into the Promised Land – a job that was to involve crossing the river Jordan, the battle of Jericho, conquering the land, dividing it up amongst the tribes and settling the individuals there. It was a enormous challenge!
When God named Joshua to take all this on, He reminded Joshua about who God is. In Joshua 1, God says:
“No one particular will be in a position to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses [Joshua’s predecessor], so I will be with you I will by no means leave you nor forsake you. Be robust and courageous … Do not be afraid do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
This guarantee is as correct for us nowadays as it was for Joshua back then. What ever scenario we finish up in, absolutely nothing is beyond God’s handle. What ever struggles come our way, his ideal appreciate can conquer just about every worry. No challenge is not possible for God. Nothing at all is as well substantially for Him to manage. And He calls us to step out in faith each and every and just about every day of our lives.
No matter how old or young we are, we can step out in faith simply because we trust in a God who is all-strong, all-loving, and normally with us. Every day is an chance to use the gifts that He has offered us to enable these about us, to appreciate our households and mates properly, and give God our all.
When our mates ask us why we go to church, we can step out in faith and invite them to come with us one particular week to see what it is like. When we see a girl at college becoming created entertaining of, we can leave the conversation and go and invest time with her. When our youth group leader asks us to serve at church in the band or by taking seeking out for a younger girl, we can embrace the chance to use the gifts God has offered us. When we’re not positive what subjects to choose, or what to do when we leave college, we can dream large in the safety that God has terrific plans for our life.
When we step out 100% for Him, he wont abandon us: He is our greatest protector.
God promises that he will give us all that we require to do what he calls us to do.
