If I Only Had The Nerve

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”  (Joshua 1:9, NIV 1984).

My Musings – The adage goes, if the Lord has brought (commanded, commissioned) you to it, He will see you through it.  No need to be fearful or terrified. That’s the Devil planting doubt in your mind.  Don’t let him discourage you.  Be strong in the Lord.  Take courage.  Not only will he go with you wherever you go, He will be with you always, even to the end of the world.

My Advice – Make sure it is God that is directing you.  If so, you have nothing to worry about.

“I’m afraid there’s no denyin, I’m just a Dandy-Lion, a fate I don’t deserve! But I could show my prowess, be a Lion, not a mouse…if I only had the Nerve! ” (Cowardly Lion, Wizard of Oz).

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
