I will never leave you and I will never forsake you. I do not have the capacity to desert MY children, nor the ability to reject MY offspring. The breath inside you is MY own. What I have intended for you will be and it will succeed.
At your lowest point, you may be lonely, but you are never abandoned. As a father, balances a toddler’s walk, I let you go, but have not gone away. In your loneliest moments, I Am training you, to walk on your own. What seemed like isolation, was for the building of strength.
The moments of standing alone are there for the testing of your integrity, to reveal your true heart under pressure. I Am always in your midst to help along the way. No matter what you see or what comes your way, MY plans did not change.
This next phase requires abilities and strengths, that only come through doing the work and withstanding pressure. You will fall and learn how to stand again. What it seen as a hardship is actually your apprenticeship.
The Lord your God himself will go over before you. He will destroy these nations before you, so that you shall dispossess them, and Joshua will go over at your head, as the Lord has spoken. And the Lord will do to them as he did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land, when he destroyed them. And the Lord will give them over to you, and you shall do to them according to the whole commandment that I have commanded you. Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land that the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall put them in possession of it. It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
