There are defining moments in life where you are called upon to be strong and courageous based on one truth; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
A defining moment may come at the beginning of an exciting endeavor or on the heels of a painful setback. Either way your defining moment will require you to make a quality decision that will create clarity and resolve for that hour.
Your gaze must be upon the One who can empower you to move forward as ‘we become what we behold.’ Joshua’s charge to be strong and courageous is our charge as well and with that command comes the promise of a good outcome.
Based on God’s abiding presence, by faith, stand strong and exhibit courage and God will bring clarity, confidence and direction in your defining moment.
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
