Everywhere You Go
In yesterday’s post, I wrote about when God tells Joshua to lead His people to the Promise Land. I shared with you that scripture shows us that the Lord encouraged Joshua by saying:
“Here is what I am commanding you to do. Be strong and brave. Do not be terrified. Do not lose hope. I am The Lord your God. I will be with you everywhere." Joshua 1:9
I want to share a little more from this story. In Deuteronomy chapter 31 talks about when Joshua succeeds Moses. In verses 7 and 8 Moses summons Joshua in front of all the Israelites. Moses reminds Joshua to be strong and brave and reiterates the Lord’s commands. Then verse 8, “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
It is awe-inspiring to me that Christ promises to go with us everywhere we go, but He doesn’t stop there. God actually goes before us and makes a way.
“The LORD your God is the one who will cross the river ahead of you. He will destroy those nations as you arrive, and you will take possession of their land.” Deuteronomy 31:3
“I will go before you and make the crooked places straight…” Isaiah 45:2
Actually, He has already gone before us. He has made the way through His one and only Son. John 14:6 “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Christ is committed to those who believe in Him. He has made the way for us and is with us everywhere we go. That is a strong commitment Christ has for us!
How committed are we to Christ?
