An Overlooked Aspect of Faith: Unlocking Courage

June 21, 20233 min read

Courage, a fundamental aspect of faith, holds significant importance in our spiritual journey. When faced with new challenges or instructions from God, it's natural to experience a mix of excitement and anxiety. Just like the exhilaration of riding a bicycle without training wheels for the first time or the monumental responsibility of becoming a parent, stepping into the unknown can be overwhelming. However, it is in these moments that courage becomes absolutely essential.

Imagine the exhilaration that surged through you when you pedaled on a bike without training wheels for the first time. Initially, it wasn't easy, but with practice and unwavering determination, you became comfortable and confident. Similarly, becoming a parent entails a momentous and daunting responsibility. The fear and self-doubt about your capabilities and suitability for the role can be overwhelming. Yet, as you embrace the journey, you not only nurture and raise your children but also discover personal growth and strength.

In life, God presents us with instructions that often require us to step out of our comfort zones. These instructions may involve engaging in unfamiliar tasks or venturing into uncharted territories. They frequently evoke feelings of anxiety and fear. However, it is crucial to acknowledge that courage is born out of recognizing these emotions. While some may advise you to dismiss your fears, true courage acknowledges the healthy fear that motivates us to be brave and resilient.

One biblical figure who exemplified unwavering courage was Joshua. Throughout his life, Joshua encountered various challenges and faced moments of uncertainty. He began as an assistant to Moses and later led the Israelites into battle. Despite the immense responsibility of guiding over a million people, Joshua remained resolute and courageous. God repeatedly encouraged him to be brave and not to be afraid.

Courage is derived from the Latin word "cor," which encompasses the heart, soul, and mind. It springs from the deepest recesses of our being, affirming our unwavering belief that God is with us and for us. It empowers us to stand firm, speak the truth, and confront adversity head-on. Just like David, who found solace in the Lord during his moments of desperation, we too need courage as we journey into the Promised Land, fully aware of the challenges that lie ahead.

Discouragement, the absence of courage, often seeps into our hearts and minds during difficult times. It casts doubt on whether God sees and hears us, leaving us feeling isolated and hopeless. However, just as God commanded Moses to encourage Joshua, we must surround ourselves with individuals who will speak courage into our lives.

While the phrase "be strong and of good courage" may resonate as familiar words, it must transcend the realm of mere rhetoric. It should resound deeply within us, bridging the gap between our thoughts and our hearts. Like Abraham, we can believe in hope against all odds, strengthening our faith through courageous acts.

In conclusion, courage is an integral and indispensable part of our faith journey. It enables us to confront our fears, embrace new challenges, and wholeheartedly trust in God's unwavering guidance. When faced with uncertainties, let courage surge within you, infusing your heart, soul, and mind. Surround yourself with individuals who will inspire and encourage you, and always remember that God's promises are steadfast and true. Step out in faith, knowing that courage will carry you through the unknown, enabling you to experience the fullness of God's magnificent plans for your life.

So, let us be strong, of good courage, and embrace the infusion of confidence that comes from the heart, soul, and mind. May we encourage ourselves and find support from others as we journey with faith. Remember, courage is the key that unlocks the door to our true potential.

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace, the absence of all things harmful, the presence of all thing beneficial. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
