Basis of Worry-free living

Because God is with me wherever I go, therefore I have courage and strength, I am not afraid, not discouraged.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” JOSHUA 1:9

Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago. ISAIAH 25:1

I have a certain future, a future that has been pre-destined by God. He has planned it all in advance. Therefore there is no uncertainty to worry about. God knows what is happening and what will be happening. He is perfectly faithful – since the past and will be so in the future.

 You’re blessed when you stay on course,
    walking steadily on the road revealed by God.
You’re blessed when you follow his directions,
    doing your best to find him.
That’s right—you don’t go off on your own;
    you walk straight along the road he set.
You, God, prescribed the right way to live;
    now you expect us to live it.
Oh, that my steps might be steady,
    keeping to the course you set;
Then I’d never have any regrets
    in comparing my life with your counsel.
I thank you for speaking straight from your heart;
    I learn the pattern of your righteous ways.
I’m going to do what you tell me to do;
    don’t ever walk off and leave me. Ps 119:1-8
