Some situations don’t require much courage. Others, however, require a great deal of courage. Take, for example, the choice Daniel was given — stop praying to God or face the hungry lions (which weren’t toothless!). Or Moses — live a life of luxury in the king’s palace, or align himself with God’s people. Or Esther — keep quiet and not cause a commotion, or stand up against evildoers at the risk of losing her life.
How we need such courage in our own lives! Courage to stand for the truth regardless of the consequences. Courage to live a life where Christ comes first regardless of what others might think. Courage to confess the name of God to a world which regards us as fools.
I am reminded of Joshua who was given a huge responsibility to take over the role of leadership from Moses and lead the children of Israel into the land of Canaan to face a host of enemies. Three times in Joshua 1, God said to Joshua, “Be strong and of good courage”. Those can be empty words spoken to a man who is trembling in his boots, but God gave Joshua a basis for his courage — “Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9).
Joshua’s strength and courage had to be found in God alone, because it was God who was going to do all the work. There was nothing that was going to take place in the life of Joshua or in the lives of the children of Israel that God would not be involved in. Every step that Joshua took, every piece of land that he claimed, every battle that he won would be the direct result of God working for him. Joshua could have courage for what was about to take place because as long as he was following God’s will, God was there by his side.
What challenges are you facing today? What fears do you have? “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the LORD.” (Psa. 31:24)
Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6 AMP
