We all want to be able to live courageously. But more often than not we give into our fears, and rather than take the risks we need to take to go somewhere new, we desire to go back to the places where we are more comfortable. The Israelites did this over and over again on the way to the Promised Land. But even though they didn't always live courageously as they should, God continued to be with them. And as they get ready to enter the Promised Land, his message is still one of grace and hope. "I will be with you. I will never forsake you. Be Strong and Courageous"
