"Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you."
- Deuteronomy 31:6
 
As the people of Israel emerged from the wilderness, they feared to go forth to the conquest of Canaan. They were almost without equipment and experience. They dreaded the might and the cunning of the enemy. Then it was that god spoke through Moses the words of assurance in today's text. Similar words God spoke later to their new leader Joshua. With such divine assurance Joshua and Israel went forward and subdued their enemies and occupied the promised land. God was faithful and fulfilled His promise.
 
Jesus such precious assurance from Almighty God we all need at stated times in our lives. There may be months and years when life flows smoothly, when the daily routine is . . .

Jesus such precious assurance from Almighty God we all need at stated times in our lives. There may be months and years when life flows smoothly, when the daily routine is not rudely interrupted, and when we are not particularly conscious of our need of divine presence, guidance, and help.  Then all of a sudden we must undergo fiery ordeals. Out spirit sinks; our courage fails us; we feel utterly forsaken. Then, when in utter loneliness and helplessness we lift our eyes to the eternal hills, there comes to us also the voice of God: "Be strong and of a good courage; fear not, nor be afraid; for the LORD, thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee nor forsake thee."
 
Christian friends, if God asks us to walk on dangerous paths, we can count on His presence and unfailing help. As we cling by faith to His promises, we will find that His unfailing presence will draw out our fear.
 
      Faith looks beyond the shadow
      Of dread and doubt and fear
      And finds the Savior waiting
      And always standing near.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Fear God and you'll have nothing else to fear.
