Day 284

LEADERSHIP

Do not be discouraged,

for the Lord your God

will be with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, when others question you in your hour of trial—"Where will you find a job now?" "What are your plans?" "Why did this happen?" "Can you really do that?"—here is how you can respond. Say these words: "My Father knows the answers. And I trust His leadership. No matter where I go, or what He asks me to do, I know He will be with me. I'm not afraid because my leader is trustworthy. He will never leave me alone." It will strengthen their faith—and yours.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Following You has never been easy, Lord, but it has always brought rewards. Thank You for Your leadership, for walking the path before me. Even when the load gets too heavy to bear, for the rest of the way, You carry me there.

SIMPLE TRUTH

God will never lead you where His angels cannot keep you.
