A Courageous Heart (4)

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.

  2. We should be so pleased that Jesus was willing to give his body for us, and always kept doing the will of his Father. In Jesus, we should find an example to go forwards in our life, continuously trying to do the will of his Father, like he did. Listening to Jesus Word we should get to know that we have to look further and take up the words of his Father, reading the Bible regularly to make us strong and to make us the best shield we can find in this world.

    • There is no better shield nor sword than the Word of God. It is the very weapon wielded by Jesus Himself when doing battle against Satan in the wilderness. Thank you for your comment and for checking out ArmorOfGod. Christ’s peace and blessings to you.
