Courage!! We mostly refer to physical boldness, but what if the physical becomes weak and our dismay is before our eyes? Will we still be courageous even if the circumstances are too powerful than we?
Lets look at a passage that states Courage…
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
4 “Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.
This same passage will also be found in the Life of Moses, Joshua, Daniel, Isaiah and the other prophets, KIng David, King Solomon.
But what does this passages mean when God said ” Do not be afraid. Be of good courage, Do not fear- You will not be forsaken? You will not be put to shame? do not fear disgrace, You will not be humiliated? You forget the past of your young memories.”
Does this passages seem to fit every individuals? OF COURSE. who doesn’t?
The descriptions of DO NOT are the main characters of every human being living on earth. Although it is the earthly attribute, God reminds each of His children to DO NOT FEAR, DO NOT BE AFRAID for a reason to be reminded that God wants us to bring His essence of Godly attributes in us.
Therefor courage defines boldness in truth, not having fear of what is about to come in the presence of honesty. For a person that does evil has fear of being caught, or simply a person whom does not see their value has no courage. Not that they are weak, but they have never understood what courage is all about. Courage is the state of your heart inclination towards justice, truth and honor. Therefore, When a person does something against the law, or against the moral ethics either cultural, social or at home, they are afraid of exposure, why? because humiliation follows. ANd that is the presence of Light where every darkness will be exposed and light can even be seen even in a room which is dark.
Are we ready to face circumstances and to take in mind that these circumstances will never stay forever, it is here for a moment so I can overcome it? And if the cost is too huge for me to pay? I will still be courageous to face the future Because it is all in God’s hand, and my heart is in peace…
Let us be reminded, that courage will never happen by depending on others, we have been given strength by God. Let us take that step and let us take that heart to seek after what is right… Let us hunger for His Righteosness. Let us stand for Good and let us bring the will of God to be manifested on our ground…earth…
Good God is in heaven and He will give strength according to our needs.
