“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD
your God will be with you wherever you go”
(Joshua 1:9, NIV)
When you look out into your future, what do you see?
What are the dreams and desires that you hold close to your heart?
So many people start with
bold dreams,but then opposition
comes. Life doesn’t turn out the
way they planned. They lose
a loved one or encounter difficulty
they didn’t anticipate. Today, if that’s
you, I want to remind you that
the Creator of the universe
designed you with specific
gifts and talents that no one
else has.He has you on this planet for a specific
purpose. When you commit your life to Him, He promises
to be with you wherever you go. Even though some things in
life may have caught you by surprise, they didn’t catch God
by surprise. His good plan for your life remains. You can trust
Him because He loves you with an everlasting love, and He
doesn’t want to see you settling for anything less than His very
I want to encourage you to be bold, be strong and be
courageous. Put aside the past and lift up your eyes to
Jesus. He is the Author and Finisher of your faith. Live
boldly and dream boldly so you can embrace the good
things He has in store for you!

Father God, today I come boldly to You. I open my heart and mind to Your Word. Fill me with Your strength today; fill me with Your hope, and keep me close to You always as I put You first in everything I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.
