This is one of my favorite verses, so chances are it’s been a dose of hope before. But I read something in The Confident Woman by Joyce Meyer this weekend that made me revisit the whole passage and reflect more on this verse. The rest of the passage is here, and the quote I loved so much is below.
I believe God’s discourse to Joshua is evidence that there would be reasons in the natural for him to fear and become dismayed and want to turn back. When we take steps of faith to make progress in life there is no guarantee that we will not experience opposition. But we do have God’s guarantee that He will always be with us and that is truly all we need. – Joyce Meyer, The Confident Woman
