Verse of the day
It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
One of our JoyfulTimesToday readers requested our verse of the day and I immediately saw how it has some of the words from Joshua 1:9 “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.”
Because I love the concept of the Lord walking before me, I’m also drawn to this verse. Paths are my visual reminder to follow the Lord and He will make my paths straight. My paths haven’t been smooth all the time, but God’s perfect plan for me works all things out for my good because I love Him. So if you need some extra encouragement today, this verse is for you too!
