Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which the Lord hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it. 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.
Living Victoriously requires strength and courage of both mind and action. The place in which the struggle begins and can ends is in our mind. Thus, we must be intentional about “renewing our mind,” constantly affirming in our mind that what God says should be will be and that we are not in this alone, God is with us, for it is His plan and purpose for our lives to LIVE life and LIVE it abundantly, Living Victoriously. The journey of life may often place us in positions and spaces where we are physically by ourselves but we must not allow the physical nature of us standing alone slip into loneliness. Loneliness attacks our mind and thus influences our actions/decisions. We are never alone as God’s presence is not only with us but also has gone before us to clear the way. With a mindset that we are never really alone and God is before us, we act in strength and courage to show up in the experiences of our lives knowing that God will work them all out for our good, conquering all things. LIVE in strength and courage that is tied to the dwelling of the presence, Spirit of God in and through you and your space as a tool to overcome and inherit all things! Know that God is lying in wait for you to show up, stand, and shout the victory!
