“Just as I was with Moses, I will be with you. No one will be able to stop you all your life. I will not abandon you. I will never leave you.
Remember, I commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t be afraid, because the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.””
Joshua 1:5, 9 ERV
You have to be strong and courageous, God talks about that in the Bible a lot. He reminds us to be strong because life is rough and if you are not strong, you can be defeated. Makes sense right? You also have to be courageous because it takes courage to keep getting up day after day and moving forward when you are scared to death. I know what all of this looks like, being strong and having courage and keeping moving because what else can you do.
God reminds us to be strong and courageous but, or And he said he will be with us wherever we go and I’m taking some liberties and saying in whatever we do. Many people will try to get you to believe God is only with you when you are doing what he says and how he says it, I didn’t read that, he said wherever you go. We are born of a woman and all will fall short of being perfect so he doesn’t require perfection. God wants us to be strong but we don’t have to carry it all, he wants us to be strong in our belief but he is our strength. So be strong in your way and let God be Strong in his way. Be courageous enough to trust God.
His word says ““Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest.”
I love these scriptures

“I look at the heavens you made with your hands. I see the moon and the stars you created. And I wonder, “Why are people so important to you? Why do you even think about them? Why do you care so much about humans? Why do you even notice them?””
Psalms 8:3-4 ERV
“God is the one who saves me. I trust him, and I am not afraid. The Lord YAH is my strength. He saves me, and I sing songs of praise about him. ””
