“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
-Joshua 1:9 (AMP)
Lord God, thank You for Your promise that You will always be with us wherever we go. It’s because of You that we can refuse to be intimidated or terrified or worried. We put our trust in You, Abba King! Help us to be courageous and to encourage others in Jesus’ name.
