“As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you” — Joshua 1:5.
We need not be afraid because God tells us he will never leave or forsake us. When bills mount, the car breaks down, and our body doesn’t work like it used to, God still cares. God won’t abandon us when times are tough.
Some suggestions for times of crisis found in Joshua 1:
- Be strong and courageous
- Obey the law and do not turn away from God’s word (the Bible)
- Meditate on God’s word day and night
- Do not be discouraged
These are not easy things to do especially when the going get rough. But this is exactly what I need to do during the bleak hours and days. No one else will come through for me like my God. I need to trust and obey — for there’s no other way.
Have you told the God of the universe your troubles today? Isn’t it time you confide in the One who cares the most about you?
