But be strong. Don’t give up. God will reward you for your work. 2 Chronicles 15: 7
DisCOURAGEment…We all feel it from time to time. But in the middle of a word that describes frustration, COURAGE stands in the middle. Life often brings us to the middle of circumstances that are difficult to bear. We try our best to deal with bumps in the road and need help from the Savior to persevere.
We all need COURAGE to deal with fear, so we can embrace a healthy heart of HOPE. God knows our weakness. He knows what robs us of finding perfect peace. The Bible teaches how to learn to be courageous and reminds us we're not alone. Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you: He will never leave you nor forsake you.
How comforting it is to know God is ALWAYS with us. He gives strength to the weary and blesses those who learn to persevere. He teaches to totally TRUST and opens hearts for ALL He provides in the timing of His will.
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.” I Corinthians 16:13 The Bible tells us to “stand firm in the faith.” Here it is again! COURAGE in the middle of scripture that brings peace to our hearts and reminds us to faithfully believe God will make us strong.
As you face moments of discouragement remember God loves YOU. Seek Him with all of your heart and totally trust He will handle ALL things. He is here! He is near! He will arm you with everything you need to be strengthened by the power of His amazing grace. Nothing will happen that He will not handle.
Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your amazing grace. In the midst of everything we experience in life, we are grateful Your provide COURAGE in the middle of our circumstances. We will love You with all of our hearts and trust You will provide the strength we need to keep on going…Thank you for helping us persevere. Amen
