Scripture for the week of July 17, 2016
The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
Have you ever come to an unexpected fork in the road, confused and discouraged without a clue for which way to go? This scripture was spoken to Joshua when Moses directed him to lead the Israelites into the promised land. You may be holding onto some hopes, promises and dreams but feel like you have lost your way. What an encouragement this promise of the Lord’s presence and guidance must have been to Joshua and it can be for you, too. Grab hold of this truth for yourself and allow the Lord to reveal and establish the hope of His presence with you. You can release your fears and discouragements knowing without a doubt that The Lord is with you! He’ll never leave you and He is going before you to lead you into the future, hope and blessings He has prepared just for you! Praise the Lord!
