The Journey with Ron Moore

It's a New Day | Joshua 1:5 | Devotional

Joshua 1:5 No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

All leaders have a day when they grow up. It’s that day when the move is made from being a part of the leadership team to leading the leadership team. True leaders take on this responsibility with humility and a huge feeling of responsibility. Their gut churns with a farrago of emotions that range from excitement to downright fear. That’s where we find Joshua in the opening chapter of this book.

For years, Joshua had served under Moses, the larger-than-life leader who led Israel out of slavery. He was a military leader and one of the twelve who had gone into the promised land undercover. He was mentored by Moses…and now Moses was gone. Knowing the emotions of Joshua’s heart, God promises his enduring presence. He promises to never leave or forsake the new leader.

That same promise is extended to us (Hebrews 13:5). Whether you are a new leader or still part of a team; whether you are rejoicing over a new birth or the loss of a loved one; whether you are celebrating a new job, feeling trapped in the one you have, or just lost the one you had; God is with you. He will never leave you. He will never forsake you. Enjoy his presence and stand firm in his strength.

Father, thank you for the promise of your enduring presence. If you are with us and for us…then who can ever stand against us?! We thank you in Jesus name. Amen.
