From Jim’s Heart—Take Courage

I’m sure you’ve faced a difficult situation or had a meeting or a rigorous commitment you needed to brave. How encouraging it is when you have family and friends nearby to support and encourage you! Their presence provides a stimulus to do your best and promotes the courage to do the right thing.

As great as family and friends are, it’s even more motivating to know that God is always right there with you, no matter what happens…and no matter where you go. If your courage is a little thin these days and you feel like you are being overwhelmed by tough encounters and responsibilities, take courage, my friend. God is with you to help you fight your battles. Be strong and courageous! Whenever you are feeling anxious or afraid about something today, or sense your courage is faltering, draw power and courage from

  • God’s character—”For the sake of his great name the LORD will not reject his people, because the LORD was pleased to make you his own” (1 Samuel 12:22).
  • God’s Word—”In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?” (Psalm 56:4).
  • God’s presence—”The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them” (Psalm 34:7).

Since God is with you and you are with God,
you have nothing to fear.
