My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Joshua,1:9, “The Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
The Lord gave this word to Joshua when God handed the responsibility to him to lead the people of Israel since Moses was growing old. This is the word of assurance given by God to Joshua as well as you. It is a word of trust, to comfort and console you. Joshua was the new leader who was appointed to lead the people of Israel into the land of Canaan. God said, to Joshua, “As I was with Moses, I will be with You. Just as I led him miraculously and wonderfully, I will come with you wherever you go.”
Many of you are not able to manage things on your own and thus you are struggling in your life. You may be facing many difficulties and trials and you may wonder how you will come out of them. If the Lord God comes with you wherever you go, then you will easily be able to come out of all your troubles. During the days of Joshua, God was with him, while he fought many battles that took place between terrible people. The army did not know where to hide in the night. So, Joshua asked God to stop the sun to stand still over Gibeon, and the moon to halt over the valley of Aijalon. These creations of God obeyed the words of Joshua. And they stood still for twelve long hours, without any movement.
My Dear children of God, how was Joshua able to make the sun and moon stand still for so long period? Joshua spoke these words, but it was God who caused the sun and moon to stand still. God who promised to come along with him wherever he went stopped the sun and moon so that the battle was in progress without any disruption. This is the truth that was recorded in the Bible. God listened to the voice of Joshua and He will listen to you when you call out to Him for help. If God is with you, then He will perform supernatural miracles through you. Today the Lord is saying, “I am with you. I will come with you wherever you go. I will remain with you and perform supernatural miracles through you.” Believe in his word. Just as the Lord was with Joshua, and performed miracles, So the Lord will be with you and perform supernatural miracles through you and for you. We should learn to lead a life of discipline like Joshua did and lean not on our understanding but trust in the Lord with all your heart. God will lead you all marvelously.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, you told Joshua, that you will go with him wherever he went. Even today we thank you for the assurance that you have given us by saying that you will go with your children wherever they go and perform miracles through them. Be with them when they walk in the midst of a difficult path. Help them in all the endeavors they undertake. They are unable to manage their problems which stand before them like huge mountains. Lord, you help them to manage their problems and come out of them successfully. We thank You, Lord, for helping my children in solving their problems. Since you are going to accompany my children wherever they go, let your presence be a great source of courage, boldness, and blessings to them.
