He is reminding the people of who He is. He is reminding them that He once before helped them conquer the Amorites.
He is reminding them to not fear those enemies and little gods, because He, their God is with them and for them.
He is their strength, protection and provision in the present day as He was in the past days. Yet….the people do not listen, nor obey His voice.

Is the LORD speaking to you today? Is He telling you to “fear not” ? If so, listen to His voice, believe Him and obey whatever He is telling you to do.

Fear Not Scripture: Joshua 10:25

Joshua 10:25This Week’s Scripture:
And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage:
Joshua 10:25 KJV

This Week’s Message:
Here we see Joshua telling the people of Israel, once again, to “Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage”

Joshua and his people of war and mighty men of valour, had previously fought and won two great battles, one of which was Jericho. because the LORD God had given victory.
Now, Joshua and his troops had defeated five more cities and their Kings, because the LORD had told Joshua He was giving them into his hand to conquer.
The LORD even listened to Joshua and made the sun and moon stand still for about a whole day. ( Read about it in Joshua 10:12 thru 10:14 )

So, Joshua again is telling the people of Israel to “Fear not” for the LORD would continue giving them victory over their enemies, as He had done, if they would remain loyal to Him and honor and obey Him.

And so shall the LORD do for us. In Christ we have the victory over sin and death and God will continue to protect, provide and give us victory over any enemy that might try to come against us, if we trust Him and obey Him daily.

Memorize this verse and “Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage” for the LORD is with you.

Fear Not Scripture: Joshua 8:1

No Fear--Joshua8-1And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed:…Joshua 8:1 KJV

Once again the LORD is saying “Fear not”. First, He was telling Moses to tell the people of Israel, then He was telling Moses to tell Joshua, and now He is telling Joshua Himself.

Joshua is now in charge, Moses is gone and Joshua is the new leader of Israel. He led the people across the Jordan River. He led them to Jericho where God caused the walls to fall down and the Israelites o conquered it. However, now, Joshua is troubled and greatly upset. He is in fear and is in dismay because his army has lost a battle, one which he thought they should have won and he is questioning God as to why. God tells him it is because some of the Israelites have been disobedient. They have sinned against God by taking things that God had forbid them to take. Joshua did not know this, but God knew, and God had not been with them when they went into battle because of it—so they lost.

Now, God is telling Joshua to find the ones who stole the goods and punish them and destroy the forbidden goods. Then, God will once again be with Israel and Joshua will lead them into victory against the enemies.

There is a lesson to learn here. It is obedience. God loves us but he requires obedience. As a just Father he will discipline those who disobey Him. Just as our parents love us, they also expect us to be obedient to them, otherwise we have to face consequences. God will never forsake His children, but He will discipline them for their own good, just as our parents would do.

Let’s think upon this and be obedient out of love and reverencere to God. For He is with us and He says “Fear Not” to us as well. He will lead us to victory if we listen to Him and do what He says.

Memorize this verse as a reminder to “Fear Not” and neither be dismayed.

Blessings to you daily as you memorize His word.

Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 31:8

Deuteronomy 31:8This Week’s Scripture:  And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8 KJV

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is very similar to last week’s.
Last week Moses was speaking to all of Israel before they were to cross the Jordan River.
Here, in this verse, Moses is speaking to Joshua, who he has appointed to be the new leader of Israel. Joshua will be the one to lead the people across the River.

Joshua has big shoes to fill as he is replacing Moses as leader. Joshua at this point is probably getting a bit fearful, perhaps doubting his ability, and Moses sensing this, encourages him.
Moses personally calls Joshua out and reminds him in front of all Israel that he is to “Fear Not” for the LORD (Jehovah=the Supreme God) will be going before him.

In essence Moses is saying” “Don’t worry or be afraid Joshua. You can do this because the LORD is going before you into that River. The LORD (Jehovah) will be with you every step of the way.
The LORD (the Supreme God) is not going to fail you, nor forsake you. Don’t let fear overtake you. Don’t doubt. Just trust the LORD and go forth!”

Believers, are we not all leaders in some way? Are we not supposed to lead others to the LORD? Are we not supposed to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ?
Think about it. Memorize this verse and use it to encourage yourself and to perhaps encourage other leaders that you know.

Yes, the LORD is always with us. We need not fear new horizons, for He will go before us to show us the way. Let’s not fear, nor doubt. We can trust Him.
