I have seen so many people give up on what they do because of a fear of embarrassment or criticism from others or because they think they don’t have what it takes to overcome an obstacle.
If we hang around fear and discouragement long enough, we can wrap that fear in a circumstance and make it an excuse that keeps us from God’s promise.
God’s remedy to Joshua is the same remedy He gives to us. He said, “The only way to fight fear and discouragement, to be strong and courageous, is to take hold of My Word and obey it.
Keep My words always on your lips, and discouragement and fear must flee. Get My Word into your thinking and meditate on it until it drops down into the very depths of who you are”. He says He will be with you wherever you go!
