Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you – Deuteronomy 31:6.
What if I were able to live out this verse through every circumstance of my life? To be strong and courageous because no matter what happens the Lord my God will be with me. To never be afraid because I fully trust that He will never leave me.
Recently I’ve had a few nightmares in which I am being chased. In one dream, my life was in grave danger, yet as I was hiding, I was singing the chorus of “Blessed Assurance” which says:
This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long. This is my story, this is my song, praising my savior all the day long.
I awoke in awe of the peace that I felt as I sang this chorus in a nightmare which caused such distress. I was totally trusting God in that moment! I want this to be my song each and every day. I want to be able to praise Him no matter how scary the moment, no matter how weak I feel, no matter what comes my way. I want to be strong because I fully believe that He is with me. Let this be my story!
