FOR the SPIRIT God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us POWER, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7.
Margaret and I are away enjoying some R&R…so I am sharing a WIRE devotion. It is your choice Courage or coward?
Want Some Courage?
I press on toward the goal for the prize
of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus—Philippians 3:14
In some respects, we know the men we’d like to become. For one, we’d like to be courageous for God, not simply surviving these lives, but living boldly in them. Well, we absolutely can (Romans 8:31-39). The thing is . . . it’s hard. We’re easily distracted—by our drives for achievement and advancement and accumulation. And we’re easily made afraid—that we’ll be embarrassed if we act boldly for God; that were not qualified to stand with him; or just that we’ve never done it before and don’t know how to start. Yes, it’s difficult becoming courageous and, actually, it’s meant to be.
