The Bible tells us in Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
There are times in every individual’s life, where they are frightened and distressed about the future. They may feel unsure about whether or not they are capable of handling what is to come or if this is the correct pathway to pursue. However, we can gain encouragement from this Bible verse. We can know that the Lord will always be with us in whatever circumstance that He places us in or pathway that He calls us to pursue. Therefore, we can have peace and move forward with strength and courage, knowing that God is on our side.
If you know that God is calling you to adopt a child, then you can move forward with this process, knowing that He will provide the strength and courage that you need throughout the adoption process. Remember that God will never give you something that is greater than you can bear, so do not fall into the trap of fear. The Lord will not leave you or forsake you. Follow His calling!
