"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." — Joshua 1:9

  • Are you facing any challenges or uncertainties that make you feel anxious or scared?
  • How is God asking us to step out and be courageous together?

As new challenges arise, we must decide how we will respond. Will we fall under the pressure, be fearful of the future or blame our spouse? Or will we turn to God, who is present in every situation? Let's choose to look to God. Trusting Him makes us stronger, and He is the One who emboldens us to be courageous.
