The Lord said, “Get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites.” The group was terrified as we are often frightened by God’s invitations to enter into the lands that we have been promised. We must remember that where God invites us, God also goes. Joshua told his people, “Remember the command that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you after he said, ‘The Lord your God will give you rest by giving you this land.”
Be not afraid begin the journey. You are on your way to a land that God has promised you. Trust that each step that you take on this path, you take with Him. Everything is as it should be. There is no reason to be scared.
God has invited you and has set you on this journey so that you can rest. He is preparing you to receive your blessing. Be strong and courageous. Do not be dismayed. He goes with you. You are never alone.
