This devotion is based on Joshua 1:5-9
5 No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. I will be with you, just as I was with Moses. I will not leave you or abandon you. 6 “Be strong and courageous, for you will distribute the land I swore to their ancestors to give them as an inheritance. 7 Above all, be strong and very courageous to observe carefully the whole instruction my servant Moses commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right or the left, so that you will have success wherever you go. 8 This book of instruction must not depart from your mouth; you are to meditate on it day and night so that you may carefully observe everything written in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in whatever you do. 9 Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

There are two shepherds in this life who influence the lives of others; Jesus and Satan. One leads to eternal life in heaven, the other leads to eternal death in hell.
The Holy Spirit calls you to be under-shepherds to compassionately help and guide others to Jesus Christ The Great and True Shepherd of our souls.

Are we truly independent of all authority over us? Actions of people living without Christ certainly point to the sinful free will. I believe that Independence, freedom and liberty point us to be dependent on God in Christ as responsible citizens of this world,
Read Galatians 5:1, 13; and John 8:31 for guidance.

Read Mark 4:35-41
Think back on the storms of your life you have encountered. How have you handled them?
Do Christians handle life storms differently from non-christians?
How can we share our faith to others in their life storms?

2 Peter 1:2-11 (Christian Standard Bible)
2 May grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 3 His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 By these he has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desire. 5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, 6 knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with godliness, 7 godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being useless or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 The person who lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten the cleansing from his past sins. 10 Therefore, brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election, because if you do these things you will never stumble. 11 For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly provided for you.
