Only God can give us true courage. We need courage to move forward and to keep moving forward. This can only happen with Him.
It is the principalities of darkness that stir up fear. Ephesians 6:12 – “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the ruler, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Here are some words of courage, Deuteronomy 31:6 – “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
Psalms 31:24 – “Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.”
The really great and wonderful thing is that — we are not alone.
To change fear into action, call upon God.
When we are filled with courage rather than fear — we are filled up with God.
Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, strengthen my courage in You. Fill me, Oh Lord, with Your courage. Fill me to overflowing. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
