The Lord your God is with you wherever you go

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9 NKJV

The Lord goes with us wherever we go.  One of the great weapons of the enemy is to try to overwhelm us with fear.  But the Lord has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love and a sound mind.  We are called to focus our hearts upon Jesus alone.  He has overcome the world and the battle belongs unto Him.  We have nothing to fear because Jesus hand is upon us and He orders our every step.

The easiest way for us to overcome fear is when we sense fear is simply ask the Lord for help.  Where we often fall short is when we try to rely upon our own strength and power.  But the key to walking in victory is humility.  It is simply humbling ourselves before the Lord and asking Him for strength.  It is His perfect love that drives out all fear.  Focus your heart alone upon Jesus and simply enjoy His presence and fellowship each and every day.
