Dailies- 2019 Day 31

Dailies~ In His Word
Day 31
Do you get nervous when you are about to start something new?  Is it fearful to step up and step into what God has called you to do?
Get over it! I say this to my self, you can tell yourself the same if you need to.
If God called me to write, then I can write what He calls me to write.
If God calls me to speak, then I can speak what He tells me to speak.
If God is my Lord, then I must follow His commands!
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
For some reason I forget this when it comes to writing a new devotional, or a story book that is different than what I usually write. But God told me to write. He has equipped me with the skills to put words in place on a screen to be printed to a page that will give someone joy at some point. So why do I freak out over something new and exciting?
Because I know the “Be strong and courageous, and do not be afraid and or discouraged” part, but I forget ‘the Lord is with me’ goes hand in hand in this scripture. I can do it because He is with me in it! So whatever I go through, writing, or speaking or just planning an event to do so I need to trust that God is with me I that aspect of my life as much as He is in another.
So do you!
So what will you do? I will obey the command of the Lord to Joshua and I! I will be strong and courageous and I will not be afraid to step out in faith that He is with me in whatever it is!
Heavenly Father, thank you that You make me brave! Help me to obey your commands, all of them! In Jesus name, Amen!
