Wherever You Go

I was driving talking to God about how I see myself doing things that are out of character or that I had always found intimidating. At times I do not even choose to step out so that I can see His faithfulness. More and more though, I am seeing my Father through me. In significant ways, yes but, it’s the little ways that get me.
I’m seeing Him in my willingness to be assertive and be an advocate for my family.
I’m seeing God’s words pop out of my face in conversations where my goal previously would have been to soothe instead of confronting. I know this is all fruit from spending time with Him and His Word.

I was thanking Him for all these victorious moments. Then I saw Him standing next to me, and I merely slipped my hand into His. Just like my daughter does when next to her Daddy.
God said to me, “You know I will never ask you to do anything without holding your hand the whole way.”

That is when the “ugly cry” started while driving on a narrow two-lane road.

God indeed will never leave us, He will never forsake us, and He certainly will not ask us to go or do anything without standing there with us.
What are the scary things or the unfamiliar places you know the Father has asked you to walk? If you correct your perception of that journey, the fear will soon lose its footing.
He did not say, go!
He said, “Come on Darlin’ let us go!!!”

“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."
Joshua 1:9

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Isaiah 41:10

"The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." Deuteronomy 31:8

To Him who led His people through the wilderness, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; Psalm 136:16
