7Then Moses called to Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, "Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land which the LORD has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall give it to them as an inheritance. 8"The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." Deut. 31:7-8
So many people are apprehensive with all that is on the news...wars and wars and rumors of war, killing in the streets, hunger, fleeing...and the list goes on. When they think of their own lives, the uncertainty and the reality of finances and debt, illnesses, and family troubles surface.
Joshua was also apprehensive. We as Christians need to take heed to Moses advice for Joshua. We need to encourage each other in these trying days. It is normal to be fearful when you have no hope, but we have hope in the Name of Jesus. Read His word, pray, receive the comfort He is ready to give. God has a plan for each of us. God's plan for your life is probably different than someone else's. So if you want to live like someone else, you have it all wrong. Because you are unique, He has a plan for you. Pray, ask Him to lead and guide your life.
If we know the Lord Jesus Christ, we should not fear or be dismayed. But, if you don't know Him, you need to open you heart and let Him come in. It is a simple thing to do. Christ did the hardest part for us, dying on the cross. All you need to do is: Believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, died on the cross and rose again for your sins and know you are a sinner. If you believe these things, the only thing left to do is pray, and ask Him to forgive you and to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior. Here is a simple prayer:
I am a sinner. I believe you was born of a virgin, died for my sins on the cross and rose again. I ask you now to forgive me and come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior.
In Your Name I pray,
If you did this, your name is now written in the Book of Life, sealed by the blood of Jesus.
Now, you too can live your life without fear or dismay~! Let someone know if you prayed this prayer for the first time in your life....or prayed it rededicating your life to Christ. He is the Great I am!!
