Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
We need to be brave. This Christian journey is not a sprint. It's like a crazy obstacle course. It throws up all sorts of mad challenges. Just when you're over, one big hurdle that makes you climb you face the net where all you can do is crawl. When you're through the net on your knees you end up in the mud, where you have to push your way out.
It's crazy. It's endurance and perseverance. If you wanted an easy ride then you might not be suited to being a Christian. It's only for the Brave.
But what an adventure it is. And God doesn't just egg us on from the sidelines, but the Holy Spirit-helper runs aside us each step of the way.
Stay strong. Be of good courage. Be Brave. It's worth it. He won't fail you. Keep running, keep climbing, keep pushing, you can make it. You are brave.
Father thank You that if You say I can be strong and have courage, I can. So today whatever I face I choose to be brave because I face it all with You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
