I got this straight from a Joel Osteen email. I found it to be very encouraging, and I really needed to hear it. I hope you fine encouragement in it too.
“Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria
God says not to tremble or be dismayed by anything, because He is with you wherever you may go. That is such an encouragement, and it’s absolutely true! You should be walking around in life without even the slightest amount of fear, because that is not the nature God gave you. You should refuse to be defeated by the things around you, even if they seem insurmountable. Perhaps one definition of courage might be staying strong and moving forward, even when most would give up and even surrender their ground to fear. Be strong and courageous today for God and do not allow yourself to be defeated by fear or the unknown!
A Prayer for Today
God, I want to live and serve You boldly without being crippled by fear. Make me strong and courageous in Your power to do what You want me to do. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
