I gave these words to Moses a long time ago.

But I think you need to hear them, too!

I AM the LORD, your God.

I Myself will go ahead of you.
So be strong and courageous!
Do not be afraid and do not panic before your enemies.

I will personally go with you.
I will neither fail you nor abandon you.

Again, I say, do not be afraid or discouraged.
I will be with you.

I am your Rock.
And My deeds are perfect.
I am a faithful God who does no wrong.

I am like an eagle that hovers over her young.
I spread My wings to take you up.
I carry you safely on My pinions.

I alone will guide you.

Look now!
I Myself am He!
There is no other God but Me.

Indeed, I love all My people.
All My holy ones are in My hands.

Follow in My steps and accept My teaching.

I surround you continually.
I preserve you from every harm.

There is no one like Me.
I ride across the heavens to help you.
I move across the skies in majestic splendor.

I am the eternal One.
And I am your refuge.
My everlasting arms are under you.
I drive out the enemy before you.

How blessed are you!
You are a people saved by the LORD!

I AM your protecting shield!
I AM your triumphant sword!

I will delight in you if you obey My voice.

Keep my commands.
And turn to Me with all your heart and soul.

You are My own special treasure...

I will do everything I have promised.

Because I love you.

(From Deuteronomy 30, 31, 32, and 33)

  1. Beautiful job, Sharon. I've been entertained, comforted, and mostly convicted by the posts that I've missed this week. I'm trying to get caught up this morning.

    It's spring break in co ed land, you know... I've been mommying.

  2. I have been comforted too - and I really needed that today. Thank you. sandie

  3. Thank You heavenly Father for speaking Your Word through Sharon to us! Thank You that the Word You spoke to Moses is for us!

    You are the Lord, our God, my God!!!

    Praise You for going before us!

    Thank You for going ahead of me and Sharon.
    Thank You that we can be strong and courageous!
    Praise be to You that we are not afraid, nor need to fear nor panic before our enemies.

    Thank You for the confirmations in Your Word that You will personally go with us. I am ever so grateful that You will neither fail me nor abandon me or Sharon or anyone who puts their trust and faith and lives in Your hands.

    Thank You and praise You for the continual reminders again, that say, we need not be afraid or discouraged because You will be with us.

    You are our Rock.
    Your deeds are perfect.
    You are a faithful God who does no wrong.
    I run to You the Rock for shelter and my strength. Hide me in Your crevice, guard me from all harm! A Rock is strong and hard to break, so
    seeing You as my Rock gives me complete security.

    You are like an eagle that hovers over her young. You spread Your wings to take us up.
    You carry us safely on Your pinions. For this and so much more we give You praise and thanks!
    Glory to the One, who sits upon the Throne eternally... You renew us and keep watch!

    You alone will guide us as we seek You first.

    I look now! I see that You are He!
    There is no other God but You.

    Indeed, You love all Your people. Each of us!
    All Your holy ones are in Your precious hands.

    Help Sharon and us to follow in Your steps and accept Your teaching the easy and the hard ones.

    Surround us continually with Your love, mercy and grace! Preserve us from every harm.

    There is no one like You,Our God.
    You ride across the heavens to help us.
    You move across the skies in majestic splendor.
    We see Your glory in the heavens, written across the skies, riding on the wings of all eternity.

    You are the eternal One.You are our refuge.
    Your everlasting arms are under us.
    Drive out the enemy before us each day.

    How blessed are we for we are a people saved by the LORD!

    You are our protecting shield!
    You are our triumphant sword! You are the great I AM!

    May You delight in us as we obey Your voice and keep Your commands. We turn to You with all our heart and soul.

    You are our own special treasure... as You see us as Your special treasures! Thank You!

    Thank You that You do everything You have promised.

    Because You love us, we love You! May we honor You, give You glory, sing praises to You and give You thanks and our love in our actions to You and others in all we think, do and pray... in Jesus name

    Just a prayer away... for 40 days... praying the Word of God... with love, peace and JOY, I proclaim... Jesus You are today, yesterday and forever the same... and all glory is Yours from Moses to us... Thank You for Sharon and the gift she is and uses for Your glory and through Your Word she blesses us as I pray You richly bless Sharon and her readers today... as always in You

    (gotta be glad I don't pray all year long in my comments which already are so long...)

  4. Hallelujah! Thanks Sharon. Great words of encouragement. Last week I'd been reading Joshua 1:5-9 over and over again. As God was with Moses, so he promised to be with Joshua and with us as well. But we have to be "Strong and courageous." Again he said, "Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law of my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be sucessful wherever you go." (verse 7)

    Right on time, Sharon. I like your quote for the week as well.

    God Bless.

  5. Amen to that!! I'm reading the gospels now, Jesus says a lot of times in them "Don't be afraid". I find that comforting, like these words you shared with us today Sharon :)


  6. Nothing is more encouraging than the
    truth of His word! Thank you, Sharon.
    Wonderful post!

  7. Sharon, Thank you for that reminder! God has used you to speak to me and remind me of His power, presence and purpose!
    Love it!

  8. So glad to know that I am loved by Him. And I've been washed with His love just by stopping by here.
    Thank you for all the blessings you share from His Word and from your heart. You have blessed me with your writings and your friendship this past year. I look forward to getting to know you (and Marty) even better.
    Just wanted to say, "Thanks," and let you know I entered you in the drawing for a copy of Ann's book, "One Thousand Gifts."

    Blessings My Friend,

  9. Hi Sharon -

    Thank you for sharing this.

    I love the relationship that our Lord had with Moses. And I love that our Lord allows us to enjoy our relationships with Him. He is perfect in all His ways.

    Truly, there is none like our Lord. Bless His awesome name!

  10. Debbie - Enjoy your mommying. And I'm so glad that you were blessed by these words today. God's Word just helps me put all the other stuff into perspective.

    Sandie - Comfort is always found in God's Word - that's where I go when I'm tired, or scared, or just plain discouraged. He's always there, and He is the Great Comforter - always.

    Peggy - Thank you for your very inspirational and kind prayer. You're so full of the Lord right now, and it shows mightily! Don't worry about how long you're commenting - you just keep praying!!

    Beverly - Yes, love those verses in Joshua! I love when God gives us those bolstering warrior words! Gives me such encouragement. Like a spiritual pep talk!

    Betty - It's true that God and Jesus say over and over, "Be not afraid." It comforts me because it acknowledges that life can be scary at times, and we struggle with fear (I know I sure do) - but we can overcome through the One who overcame!

    Sandy - Amen to that!! Nothing better than the Word of the Almighty God - a Word that stands true forever!

    Janet - Thanks, buddy. What would we do without Him? And aren't we just SO thrilled that we'll never have to find out?!

    Janis - Blessings to you, too. I also enjoy our friendship, and look forward to getting to know each other even better. Keep up your beautiful writing. It always blesses me. Thanks for entering me in the giveaway - we'll see what happens!

    Sandra - Couldn't have said it any better! I am thrilled beyond belief that the Almighty God of the universe calls me His friend! And that I can speak to Him as boldly as Moses did. There is none like Him, as you said. AMEN!



"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)

Thanks for your comments - it is such a joy to be sharing my journey with friends like YOU!
