Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Psalm 46:10 – Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
It is time to know how to keep yourself encouraged. Even when it seems like you’re not going to make it. Divine courage (anything that comes from God is divine) is a gift from God that you must know how to accept as a gift. Supernatural divine courage is full of mysterious victory. God is always saying to you, I’m with you. I won’t fail you.
Courage and fear cannot stay in the same place. Courage is the ability to do something that you know is difficult or dangerous.
Who’s facing something now? Who’s facing a door that they’re pulling on that doesn’t want to happen? Keep pulling it. The door has to come open. Pull with courage. Refuse to be discouraged. Do not let the devil have a party on you. Let him know that you know who you serve, you know who you are, and you know the end results are that you’re going to have the victory. No matter what it is. People who are strong and have good courage live in victory in the time of trouble. Why? They know all the time that they’re on the way out.
The 23rd Psalm says, Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. That’s the same way you should be. You should say: I don’t have to run. Death has no dominion over me. Problems don’t have any dominion over me. I’m going to walk through this thing because I walk by faith and not by sight.
Keep your courage in every situation and keep trusting God for favorable results.
