Don’t try to cross that river until you get to it!

Joshua 1:9

Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

Here’s the passage I want to share today out of my little 1884 book of daily devotionals; I hope you get a blessing from it as I have.
Watch your way then, as a cautious traveller; and don’t be gazing at that mountain or river in the distance, and saying, “How shall I ever get over them?” but keep to the present little inch that is before you, and accomplish that in the little moment that belongs to it. The mountain and the river can only be passed in the same way; and, when you come to them, you will come to the light and strength that belong to them.

– M. A. Kelty
