Thought for Today: “Being Courageous”
Courage is putting our faith in action. To have courage is to act in accordance with our beliefs. If we say we believe in something we should be able to stand for that belief no matter what comes at us.
So, I think it’s safe to say we all need courage to face the future. We need courage so that we’re not debilitated by fear and paralyzed by anxiety, caving in and compromising our convictions due to difficult circumstances.
The Apostle Paul said that God has not given to us such a fearful spirit, but rather a mind that is sound, a heart that is filled with love, and a power to face our fears. (2 Timothy 1:7)
Courage is not about all that superhero stuff, but rather it’s about the courage to face life’s everyday challenges. It’s these choices we make that show if we’re courageous or cowards. It’s choosing between what is right and what is convenient. It’s choosing our convictions over comfort.
In short it takes courage to be a Christian. It takes courage obey God.
