It Takes Courage

It takes courage
to tell the truth
to follow your heart
to do something alone
to make yourself vulnerable
to leave a longtime love
to trust again
to speak up
to wait on God’s best
to start something new
to admit your own ignorance
to believe things will change
to give expecting nothing in return
to be yourself

Often we find God saying throughout Scripture, “Be strong and courageous.” “Take heart.” “Take courage.” While negative situations come to deflate and discourage us, God gives us the necessary ingredient to face life’s challenges head on—courage.

Let God give you the courage you need in order to do what you never thought you could do. Let Him give you the courage to succeed past your limitations, to face tomorrow, to enjoy life today, to face your fears, to change your world, to face your inner critic, and to embrace the truth of who you are in Him.

Prayer: Thank You Father. Help me be courageous. You are my strength and my confidence. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me do what I have been so afraid to do. I know You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind. Help me understand what that means for me. In Jesus Name.

(Read 2 Timothy 1:7)

  7. Hmm! It’s very encouraging to read this message from the heart of the King. Life is filled with experiences both good and bad. We really need divine courage to navigate the course of this life. Dearest Lord, sometimes it feels like there’s no strength to carry on. But the truth is that our walk with you is not about feelings. It is about standing on the finished work of Jesus Christ. Yes, in Him we live and move and have our being. Nothing shall separate us from the love of God. Our strength and courage comes from you alone. Even in our weakness, we still make strides because our successes comes from you alone. I refuse to judge myself based on my present circumstances but based on what You say I am. I am strong and courageous. I am an overcomer. I am who God says I am. I love you Lord!
