"God is with you"

Joshua 1:9 (ESV) 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

What great comfort in this verse. When we server our God, wherever we are he is right there with us. There are many times in life that he calls us to places we just don't want to go. We tend to be content with where we are and not interested in change. Yet, to be faithful to him we must go.

Today he may call us to go somewhere we have great trepidation about. But, we don't need to fear, when we get there he will be there. Not only will he be there, his people will be there too. Think about what Jesus told Paul;  Acts 18:9,10 (ESV) 9 And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, "Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, 10 for I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you, for I have many in this city who are my people."

Whether The Lord calls us to a new city or a new situation in our lives we will not be alone. If he calls us somewhere that's where we need to go because he has work for us to do.

So today, lets go where he calls and do as he asks.
