Daily Devotional – Fear Not, God Goes With You

By on January 7, 2021
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Deuteronomy 31:3-6. Hope is fundamental to and a prerequisite for faith. When you face fears that overwhelm and overcome you, hope dwindles at first.

“The Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy these nations before you, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua also will cross over ahead of you, as the Lord said. And the Lord will do to them what he did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, whom he destroyed along with their land. The Lord will deliver them to you, and you must do to them all that I have commanded you. 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.”

God goes ahead of you!

A great way to face fears is to be reminded of and focus on God. God has instructed us that He goes before us. If God has gone before us, then He is fully aware of the future that worries us. If God has approved our future, then we need not worry about it, but be hopeful.


Even better than God going ahead of us, is that He is omnipresent. God is in our past, present, and future all at the same time. He is able to see and overcome the changes to our future because of our actions or the lack thereof. 

As we take a step back from our situation to catch our breath and take some deeper breaths, we can see a little more of God’s perspective. We can take the opportunity to remember the past where God provided in ways unimaginable and build our faith and hope for our future. Be courageous and strengthened by God today!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, God, for going ahead of me to clear my path. Rather than me trying to fight my own way through the forest, I lean on You and Your way, confident that You know and have approved the future that You leading me on.

In Jesus Name,
