Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. – Deuteronomy 31:6 NKJV
We have a choice, faith or fear. For everything that discourages, we choose faith or fear.
Life comes at us hard. The enemy is relentless. When I was less mature in the Lord, I vividly remember telling one of my fellow warrior sisters in Christ that I wish we could just get a break. We hoped that one day could pass without a battle. We did not quite grasp it at the time, but we had caught a break. His name was Jesus. He was broken for us. He gave us the break we needed. We have to accept what He did for us and bravely face whatever comes our way. We should remain rooted in the Word. We should increase in strength and knowledge that God Almighty, El Shaddai, lives inside of us. He goes before us. The Lord is on our side. He is on our right side, left side, front side and even on our backs side. We can choose to be brave by abiding in the awareness that El Shaddai is walking with us. He is the bravest, mightiest, strongest and most powerful. When we take Him at His word, we have absolutely nothing to fear. Bravery is our choice when we come to know that we are overcomers in Him.
I enCOURAGE you to be strong and of good courage. CHOOSE FAITH. TRUST GOD. BE COURAGEOUS. It is the only way to make it through the day. It is the only way to live in this present time.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1 NKJV)
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NKJV)
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. (1 Corinthians 16:13 NKJV)
“Therefore, take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me. (Acts 27:25 NKJV)
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4 NKJV)
What then shall we say to these things? If God [is] for us, who [can be] against us? (Romans 8:31 NKJV)
