excerpt from On Trusting God – Deuteronomy 31

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you (Deut 31).

Take a deep breath and meditate on this promise of the Lord. I am the one who goes with you. I will not leave you. I will not abandon you. This is reality.

Now, when you have a moment, allow yourself to reflect on one or two of the most challenging things currently impacting your life. Ask the Lord how he wants to be with you in the midst of these challenges. Write down anything that you sense the Lord bringing to mind [words, passage of scripture, memory, mental picture].

Set a reminder [phone/watch] to meditate on this reality several moments throughout your day – He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.
