Week of June 21: God Comes Through
Scripture: "And the Lord said to Joshua, “Do not fear them, for I have delivered them into your hand; not a man of them shall stand before you.” Joshua 10:8
God Comes Through
God promises the Israelites victory as they suit up for battle against the Amorites. But as the battle rages, dusk encroaches. Since it’s customary for battles to subside at twilight and resume the following day, the setting sun poses a threat. But just when it looks as though the Israelites will lose daylight before cementing their victory, the supernatural swoops in and hatches one of the Old Testament’s most mind-boggling moments: God had a conversation with Joshua! He assured him that everything would be well “Do not fear them”:, the Lord tells Joshua.
How often do you allow the intimidation of others hold you back from pursuing your dreams? It’s time for you to let go of them! First, find time to discover who you are! I recall a time in my life when everyone else's voice mattered! I would share something with a friend and they would diminish it as if what I said was unreal. At the age of 22 I wanted to purchase a Brownstone in Harlem. I was told I was crazy, too young with no idea what it took to be a homeowner! Those words impacted my dream. I never pursued my dream.Second, take time out this week to have a conversation with God. Hear what the Creator has to say! Lastly, stop allowing others to dictate your future!
Let Us Pray:
Father so many times I have heard you but failed to trust in your instructions. I sought out to get clarity, understand and support from others but learned their advice was untrue.. Today, forgive me for my wrong. Lead me Lord and I shall follow you in Jesus name Amen!
