Be Courageous

Courage is doing the things which frighten us, the things which take us out of our comfort zone and are unfamiliar to us, the sort of thing which we are facing now.  In that well known Psalm, 23, David tells us that although we walk through the valley of the shadow of death God will be with us and He will prepare a table for us in it.  Many times, the bible tells us of how God wants us to be courageous.  The book of Joshua chapter 1 verse 9 records God’s words to Joshua:

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.’
