Title: “How to BE STRONG when Fear is not an option?” 12/10/17
“This is my command-Be Strong and Courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NLT
We live today in ratchet times. It appears that anything goes. The lack of the moral good is minimized. No wonder fear is rampant and the energy to try goes by the wayside. Have you ever been afraid to fail or been in a situation that you felt was over your head, petrified of the thought of how it would turn out or if it would ever turn around? Joshua is one of these person, I can imagine was scared and overwhelmed; scared of how the situation would turn out.
In the above scripture, we find the Lord commanding Joshua to be strong and courageous. As the Book of Joshua opens, we find the Israelites camped at the bank of the Jordan River at the edge of the land God had promised them since being freed from slavery in Egypt. Moses, the Israelites prominent leader had just died. Joshua, the son of Nun, new job was to lead more than 2 million difficult and rebellious people into a strange land and conquer it in the midst of trouble, in the midst of messy people. God promised to help them drive out all the evil and bad behavior from their promised land. Look at how many times God had to tell him to Be Strong and Courageous.
Deuteronomy 31:6; 31:7; 31:23; Joshua 1:7; 1:9; 1:18; 10:25
These promises truly encourage me. In fact, I placed Joshua 1:9 on my resume at the first of starting MED LIFE FIT many years ago! God has and is continually coming through on His promises to bless this practice. It is only because of Him that changing Lifestyles has been successful and that has occurred only in those who have lean on the power of God’s Holy Spirit to change from the inside to the outside. You see, the Lord our God himself promises to crossover ahead of you. He will never fail nor abandon you.
By Joshua Chapter 10, I believe Joshua had learned it for himself to stay in God’s face, presence and WORD; by then, Joshua could pass it on to his people.
We at Med-Life-Fit want to let you know that we boldly declare that God is with you! God wants you to know that changing from bad and unhealthy to good and healthy is not easy. How to Be Strong? It requires staying in God’s face, presence and reading His Word as often as it takes. This my friend will bring rising results.
Be Strong and Courageous!
