The art of being courageous
There are times in our lives that seems like God is so far away or maybe he is not listening, nothing is happening he is so quiet. When you look at the mountain that’s in front of you, it makes you feel like your prayers are hitting a dead wall and you ask yourselves is God really listening? Does He really care? How come this and that is happening to me! This emotions makes us wonder does it really matter that I pray. Can God help me with this? He has helped me in the past when I prayed but this is a big one, can anything good that come out of this? Can God take care of this? Most of us have wondered!! We have all been there. In psalms 78:40 ……….. He is talking to the children of Israel how often they have rebelled against him in the wilderness. They tested God again and again and proved the Holy One Of Israel. They did not remember His power or the day when he redeemed them from foe. Oh my my this each time i read this scripture i want to repent. I have written down on my diary FAUZA do not limit God. Do you know who you are talking to? Do you know who is? So when we ask can God help me with this? Remember Isiah 40:28-31
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
When your strength when you are wrestling with fear, doubt, anger when fear overwhelms you remember this scripture quoted above. His love has no limit, His power has no limit. There is nothing that is too hard for him. So keep knocking, keep asking, keep seeking because He is listening.
I want to encourage you to become courageous? Fear is often our natural response. We don’t have to think of all our reasons to be afraid. But being strong and courageous doesn’t come naturally. Often, we always have to think through different reasons why we ought to overcome our fears with courage. God calls us to take courage because it doesn’t just come naturally; we have to fight for it. He is logging for you to turn to Him. Know that you are not alone. In Philippians 4:6 the scripture says, Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
I wish you good heath
