Leaving the fears aside

"I hereby command you: Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9
2 - Reflect
When Moses died, Joshua had to take charge of guiding people to the promised land, I can almost feel the fear he felt when facing such a mission. But leaving fear aside he said YES to the call, despite his doubts and his fears he decided to put himself in God's hands so that He would use him according to His will.

Did God call you to do great things? Maybe you're wondering if you have what it takes for the task. I encourage you to remove the focus from your fears and ask God to fill you with His courage and strength. If He has called you to move forward, He will provide everything you need to accomplish what you are commissioned to do. He only seeks hearts willing to listen to His voice, to follow in His footsteps, to do things according to His will, and leaving our own. It seems difficult, does it not? But it's not impossible.

We live praying for God to do His will in our lives, and when He does so it may not be as we yearned for. Before we get sad we should think. Perhaps God worked in this way because He wants to take us to a higher level than we are, I am completely sure that He has control over everything, and that if His will is different from mine, it is because He predestined something greater to achieve in our path.

I encourage you to put the fears aside and just look at the goal. The big things are to come!
