New International Version (NIV)
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
It takes courage to trust and obey God. It takes time and practice. The best part of the journey is that He does no abandon us to our own devices. He sends us His Holy Spirit to build us up in truth and love, with courage and strength that surpass all understanding, giving us wisdom, joy and peace! Happy to take up God’s offer and walk as He commands – a new dignity and joy – I am home with God in my heart, at last!
