Here is what I am commanding you to do. Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid. Do not lose hope. I am the Lord your God. I will be with you everywhere you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
Rehearsing your troubles means experiencing them many times. You are meant to go through them once, when it actually occurs. Do not multiply your suffering in this way- relax in His peace- it will prepare you for the day transforming fear into confident trust. -Excerpt from Jesus Calling
God is faithful and true. He is with us in every moment and is ahead of us in all that is to come. He weaves a tapestry of all of those moments for His good. Our job, actually His command, is that we remain strong and brave, do not fear or lose hope, and know that He is with us everywhere we go.
Satan probes us with insecurity and plagues us with “what if”. Turn your back on those Satanic attacks. Diffuse them with prayer. Cling to His robe and follow His command. Breathe in His strength, cling to the bravery that he infuses, and do not lose hope because Faithful and True is leading you on His white horse.
Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. (Revelation 19:11)
