Joshua 1:19

The book of Joshua opens with the words, "After the death of Moses ... the Lord said to Joshua ... get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give you..." That was the beginning of a journey for Joshua and those following him to a place they had not been, and to experiences they had not had before.

In verses 6, 7 and 9 God commands Joshua to be strong and courageous. God told him do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. While those words were spoken to Joshua, the same promise is given to you and me when Jesus promised that he would be with us until the end of the age.

We are living in unprecedented times in which scientists are scrambling in effort to stop the pandemic from spreading. We are not able to gather in the fashion to which we are accustomed, somewhat isolated from each other. But we are not alone. Jesus is with us and working through these circumstances to develop something of great value in our faith and our character. So we give him thanks today for this day. We give him thanks for his mercies and compassion that never fail and, in fact are new every morning!

We are praying that you will be blessed today, and are looking forward to when we can meet again! Pastor Tony will be sharing another post (God Is Enough) sometime today on the website in place of our normal Wednesday night Bible study.

We love you all God Bless
