Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT, “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
I’ve learned and still learning that I don’t have to worry, because the things I spend time worrying about, God has already worked out on my behalf. I may not always see it right away, but that doesn’t change the fact that He has worked things out. He has a good plan.
When fear and discouragement try to creep in, we can remind ourselves of God’s continuous presence with us. He personally goes before us and paves the way. We just have to walk the path He has already laid out for us. Knowing that God has already gone where we are going is a comfort. It also gives us the confidence we need to move forward in faith. After all, we’re called to live by faith and not by sight, which of course is an amazing privilege (2 Corinthians 5:7). We’re blessed that there is so much more than what we see with our natural eyes. Living by faith draws us closer to the heart of God as we learn to trust in His faithfulness and wisdom.
Take heart! God will never fail you or abandon you. He is with you every step of the way, so remain faithful and obedient. He rewards us as we diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).
