I Am With You

BETTY ROBISON — “This is my command — be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 NLT)

When God put missions on James’ heart and Life Outreach began raising funds for missions in Africa, James and I traveled there frequently.

Traveling always made me nervous and, at times, certain areas of South Africa were very unstable and dangerous. But I loved interacting with the precious African people, and I was so thankful we were able to do something to help them.

I remember praying that God would not “call” us to live there and hearing Him reply, “Betty, if I called you to live there, you would have peace, and I would equip you with everything you need.”

The Lord never called us to live in Africa, but I learned a very valuable lesson.

God will never send us somewhere without His peace, provision and protection. Even if He takes us somewhere that is a little scary, we will always have peace in knowing He is with us every step of the way.


Further Study: Hebrews 13:21; Isaiah 30:21; Isaiah 41:10

Take action: Declare today: Jesus, I receive Your freedom in my life. I receive Your grace and mercy. Fear has no place here. You are my security and my confidence. Your Word is life to my body, soul and spirit.
