“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.”


Joshua had just been ‘commissioned’ to take over from Moses to lead God’s people into the Promised Land, a daunting task with a heavy responsibility! What a wonderful ‘pep talk’ Moses gave Joshua, based on a lifetime of experience of God’s goodness and faithful care. Are you starting a new job, moving to a new assembly, or beginning a new relationship? The same promise holds good today. Whatever your circumstances, he will go before you, stay with you and never leave you.
