Courage to Stand

courage
“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.” (Psalm 31:24)

Courage is more than believing strongly about something. When you are courageous you are willing to voice your convictions and take action to stand up for biblical principles. It’s not enough to just believe. Courageous Christians are actively involved in upholding moral absolutes and the truth of God’s Word in their individual lives, homes, communities, cities and nations. Be courageous! Stand up for truth! Your voice can make a difference.

Courage is fear that has said its prayers.

If you knew that God would give you courage, what would you speak out for today?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for the strength and conviction to live out biblical virtues in my daily life. Give me the courage to stand up for your Word and the voice to declare its truth in the face of opposition. Amen.
