“No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5
Be strengthened by the Word of God. He has said that he will not abandon us and give us strength for His name’s sake. We are of little faith struggle to believe his Words and put our undivided trust onto him all time. But God shows his faithfulness to us in the time of despair and our weakness to reassure us that He cares for us and loves us.
Moses represents a promise of the past. “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you,” said God. We may be in a different pit of darkness at present, but do you remember the past pits of your life when you felt despondent yet God brought you out of that. God never leaves us or forsakes us. I truly believe that God does not give us anything for which we are not ready. Trials and tribulations are necessary to better our character. God knows this. Though we may feel that goodness has totally departed from the face of the earth, we still should know that God is at work.
