Moving Ahead Into The Unknown

By Edd Sterchi

     When the children of God were about to cross the Jordan river and take possession of Canaan under the leadership of Joshua, they were heading into the unknown. So God gave Joshua these words of assurance: “Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” (Josh. 1:9). We are always headed into the unknown. These words can be an inspiration and comfort to us, as well.
     As we forge ahead into the uncertain future, let us remember:
* We need to rely on our abilities (“Be strong”)
* We need to be brave (“and of good courage”)
* We need to step in faith (“do not be afraid”)
* We need to be optimistic (“nor be dismayed”)
* We need to remember that God is with us (“for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go”)
    What lies ahead for each of our lives? Who knows? God knows! And He will help and guide us if we trust in Him. Knowing that, we should step into tomorrow with much confidence, hope, faith, and courage.
