Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Joshua 8:1

It’s so easy to give in to fear. You can do it without even trying. And if you don’t learn to stop fear, eventually, it will stop you.

When I was a teenager, I was afraid of rejection. Instead of having friends reject me, I’d hide in the bathroom at lunch. I was afraid that no one would want to eat with me. So instead of being in the cafeteria, I’d hide in the restroom until lunch was over. Fear stopped me.

Instead of trying to make friends, I decided that I’d let the fear of rejection be the stronger voice in my life. As a result, I was often sad and lonely.

Fear in any area of your life will try to stop you. It will stop you from making friends, taking risks, and sharing your faith. So today, determine to say “no” to fear. Begin to step out, even when you’re afraid. Don’t let fear have the final say in your life!

Instead, be like Joshua. Be strong, don’t fear, and see God come through for you in a mighty way.

Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid or discouraged. Take all your fighting men and attack Ai, for I have given you the king of Ai, his people, his town, and his land. – Joshua 8:1 (NLT)
