Today Reminder - 10 January 2013 (Responsibility)

A reminder for today
Moses laid his hands on him and commissioned him to lead the people, just as the LORD had commanded through Moses. (Numbers 27:23)

Responsibility – following God’s voice:

God chose Joshua as the new leader of Israel. This must have been an enormous task that God laid on his shoulders. Moses has been the one who lead the people out of Egypt and who journeyed with them through the wilderness and handled all their complaints and all the daily issues. To take over from Moses must have been difficult for Joshua, yet he also knew that God chose him, therefore God will be with him just as He was with Moses.

You see, in life we often come to a cross road where we have to change paths or change direction. This could be a number of things for example, change a job or change of position or even starting a new life. We sometimes find ourselves standing at this fork in the road staring at it with fear. This fear is the unknown that lies ahead and the fear that we do not know what awaits us in the future and most of the time we are afraid that we might have made the wrong decision.

My dear friend, it is times like this that we have to place the burden in God’s hands. He knows what awaits us and He knows why we have to take this chance and just trust Him. God has a plan and if we listen carefully we can follow His direction every step of the way. Yes, there will be huge waves and stormy weather, but once the wind quiets down and the storm is over you will be stronger and God will be much clearer in your life.

Do not let the enemy use fear to keep you away from the blessings that awaits you. God has already given us such an awesome miracle and our year has not even started. Staying the course and not allowing fear to alter our direction will make this year a year where God will shine in our lives. 

I look forward to the unknown that awaits us and I continue to pray for you my friend, because the same God that keeps me focused and standing in the eye of the storm, is the same God that carries you through each day.

I pray that you will feel His presence in your life, just as I feel it in mine, in Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
