Our Scripture reading today is Deuteronomy 31:7-8.
Verse 8, "And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed."
There is about to be a change of leadership for the people of Israel. Moses is handing the responsibility to Joshua. The emphasis of this verse is on the fact that Joshua is actually following as well. The LORD will lead Joshua and then Joshua will lead the people. Leaders must also be followers. Like Joshua of old, we have the LORD going before us leading the way. He promises to never leave us or forsake us. Hebrews 13:5, "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
Follow the LORD today and every day! He NEVER fails!
