When the dust has settled, the noise around you has calmed down, you shall remain standing – @PastorRan
When you start running the Christian race, the odds may be against you. There may be many obstacles on your way. But do not be distracted by these things, they are not real and they should not stop you from reaching your goals in life. I don’t know what you may be going through in life, the Bible says be strong and courageous.
Joshua 1:4-6 “From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory. “No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you”. Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.”
Let me give you the backdrop on which this verse of scripture is coming from. God had commanded Moses to lead His people into the promised land. The Bible says Moses lead them until midway, he grew old and died. When Moses died, there was panic in the camp because many people regarded Moses as the one who had the vision. The Bible says God commanded Joshua to take the lead and complete the journey. Joshua was untested, he did not have the support of the people and he was not sure if he was up to the task. God told him not to be afraid, he promised Joshua that no man was going to be able to stand before him all the days of his life. This means Joshua will not lose any battle as long as he lived. The Bible even provide the recipe for Joshua to succeed when we read two verses down.
Joshua 1:4-6 “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.”
You may have a difficult task at hand and you don’t know how to accomplish it, just as the Lord promised Joshua, He is speaking to you now to never give up. His promises towards you are everlasting because the Holy Spirit lives inside of you. He is the one that will bring you through. Don’t be afraid of the sea of false accusations against you, they will not stop you from being victorious. Don’t be afraid of the heat of torments, they can’t hold you down. Others might have reached the point where you are and have given up, but not for you. Keep walking by faith and keep pushing on and you will go through the walls that you see in front of you.

Dear Father, I know that you are my shepherd. I am not afraid of the arrows by night nor the pestilence of the day. I lay hold on your word which says no weapon formed against me shall prosper. I take advantage of your power that is at work in me right now in the name of Jesus. Amen.
