Moses said to Joshua, ‘Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff (rod) of God in my hands.’
- Wherever we go and whatever we do, we must make sure that the Lord is with us. - We must not do things in our own strength or in our own wisdom. - The ‘rod of God’ was a symbol that the Lord was with them. - Now, as you face the day, take hold of His hand, and He will give you the victory.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, because You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. Amen.

Faith is something that God has planted within each one of us. Our faith was meant to be active. This means that our faith should be operational. We were never meant to be passive Christians. Faith is a journey that our hearts have to take. Faith is not some strange value. It is something alive within us that propels us into what God has for us.
1 Timothy 1:19 Cling tightly to your faith in Christ.
WHAT IS FAITH?
We need to understand this vital aspect of faith. The Bible gives us a definition.
Hebrews 11:1 What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (NKJV)
It is that confident assurance within us that allows us to trust God and to be expectant of Him.
