He Will Not Fail Thee

on February 25, 2012

“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”  Deuteronomy 31:6

This verse in Deuteronomy was recorded as Moses commissioned Joshua to lead the children of Israel into the promised land.  There were things Joshua would face that wouldn’t be easy.  There would probably be times when what God asked him to do didn’t make sense.  These words, however, could serve as an encouragement to him during those times.

God wanted Joshua to know that He wouldn’t fail him or forsake him, and he wants us to know the same thing today.  We will undoubtedly face circumstances that are beyond our control and will be tempted to let fear into our lives.  God doesn’t want us to let fear in, though.  He reminds us to be not afraid.

Sometimes our path seems dark and dreary and we don’t understand the way, but as long as we have God, we will be safe.  He promises us that He’ll never fail us nor forsake us.  Today I challenge you to be strong and of good courage.  Don’t let situations you don’t understand burden you down, rather have faith in God and trust that He’ll never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

“So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”  Hebrews 13:6
