Anointing (Joshua 1:9)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “anointing.” I think one of my favorite parts of my early years as a Christian was the way that I was able to deal with big days, big decisions, and anything that caused my heart to way heavy for one reason or another. Although I did not understand much about the Bible, I did know that I could read certain verses and really resonate with the people that were going through trials and adversity. Joshua was one of my favorites, probably because he was very young and when he was called to step up to the plate and take over God’s mission and vision for the people of Israel, it seems to me that he had a few jitters along the way. And, I learned by reading his story that God would be with me, because he was with Joshua.

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go" (Josh 1:9)

My question is: what are the parts of your life that are attracting extra special attention from you today? Where are the jitters, and to what do you attribute those feelings of anxiety? My prayer is that you remember today that God is with you and wants you to be full of courage, as he has given you his anointing in this relationship that you walk with him. So, in the spirit of today’s passage, I hope that God shows you along the way that he has made you for something special. Hold on to that, and thank God today for giving you the opportunities that he does.

Praying for you,
