This is my command–be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9 (NLT)
It’s so easy to become afraid. Whether it’s fear of the future, fear of failing your history test, or fear that your crush will reject you, everyone deals with fear. And while fear is something that we all face, if we let it, fear will stop us from doing the things God wants us to do.
The bad thing about fear is that if you give in to it, you’ll find yourself unhappy and living with lots of regrets. So instead of letting fear cripple your life, choose to be strong and courageous.
You can stand against fear when you know that God is with you. You know that you’ll come out on the other side of every difficulty winning because God will not leave you. Today, regardless of what you’re facing, know that God has a plan for you. Don’t allow fear to stop you from doing what God has called you to do.
