"Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you." -Deuteronomy 31:6
The only way to get to the site that is most likely the actual place Jesus was baptized is to traverse a no-man’s land laced with mines. There’s a narrow road leading down to the Jordan. On rare occasions, scholars and tourists may be taken there, but only in the company of Israeli soldiers and their guns. In life, we walk through minefields and get surrounded by enemies. But God’s promise is to be our “convoy.” If we go in company with Him, we don’t have to tremble at the dangers around us.
