Manna for the Day

ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ : "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).

Through out our life we face many battles in various areas of our life. One of the biggest strategy of the devil to keep us from achieving our goals, is to put fear in our hearts even before the battle is ever fought. The enemy knows that once we get in to the battle with faith, it is not us but God who is with us who will fight our battle to victory. Many battles for the people of God are lost not because of lack of firepower, but because of lack of faith in the God who is with us. It is sad when we allow fear to rule over us and become afraid and dismayed seeing the situations of life that rages around us. This is why our God who wants us to see success in our lives has commanded us to stay strong and courageous. To stay strong and courageous is not an option for a child of God, but a command to be obeyed. God wants you to win all the battles that you ever face in your life, so we ought to encourage ourselves always, saying to ourselves, "Your God is with you ...[put your name here]... wherever you go." Our God is the God who controls the whole earth from heaven, so we ought to live in faith to inherit all the promises He has given to us in our lives. Faith destroys fear and restores the consciousness of God's Presence to keep our heart intact through the heat of the battle. SPEAKING TO OURSELVES ABOUT THE GREATNESS OF OUR GOD INCREASES OUR FAITH IN HIS ABILITY AND DESTROYS THE FEAR OF THE ENEMY. Remember, the next time you face violent opposition of the enemy and discouragement, God wants you to encourage yourself and win the battle with him.
