No one will be able to stand agains you as long as you life. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you.

Joshua 1:5

Joshua’s new job consisted of leading more than two million people into a strange new land and conquering it. Every new job is a challenge. Without God it can be frightening. With God it can be a great adventure. Just as God was with Joshua, he is with us as we face our new challenges. We may not conquer nations, but every day we face tough situations, difficult people, and temptations. God promises, however, that he will never abandon us or fail to help us. By asking God to direct us we can conquer many of life’s challenges.
