Be strong and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! Psalm 27:14
We’re scared. Afraid of what might be out there. So fearful of the unknown that our spiking anxiety can prevent us accomplishing necessary responsibilities. Too nervous of things turning out poorly, we decide never to venture an attempt. Unwilling to make a mistake, we play it safe.
Strength and courage do not come from within. How could they? If we’re honest, we know we’re nothing more than a frightened little boy or little girl living in a very grownup world. There is a source of inordinate strength. Strength and courage to confront your struggles. The supplier? Jesus. Granting you His own fortitude, together you boldly and powerfully confront the countless complications that seem entirely insurmountable alone. You are not alone. Your courageous heart beats . . . no pumps . . . no pounds blood through your body coursing strength to every fiber of your being. The very strength and courage of Jesus.
Jesus, give me your courage today. Amen.
