“Then Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage, for thus the LORD will do to all your enemies against whom you fight.” – Joshua 10:25
FIGHTING the good fight BY FAITH, NOT FEAR!
Joshua calls God’s people to live lives of faith rather than to live in fear. Yes, there are battles to fight. Rather than letting fear paralyze us we fight by faith—trusting, and obeying God. We are not to be cowardly but courageous. We are not to be full of fear but full of faith!
Just as Joshua was to fight by faith without fear, so too are we. So today, obey and do what He has called you to do, trusting that where He guides, He provides. Let today be a day of “by faith” as opposed to a day of “I was afraid!”
