Courage is fear walking. Walking into the face of challenges. Walking away from the things that no longer serve you. Walking into the unknown. Walking into the truth.Walking away from the familiar. Walking without fear of the future because you know who holds the future and goes ahead of you to prepare the way. Its not always easy to take a step into a cup of courage but it’s always worth the step. Courage will actually put a spring in your step and joy in your heart. Courage takes an inner strength that comes from trusting the One who has walked it out for us thousands of years ago. He was the courageous one so you could be too. There is absolutely nothing He didn’t walk through for you so that you get up and walk too. Nothing. It took all the courage He could muster up to walk from the Garden of Gethsemane to the cross of Calvary, knowing His eminent death and resurrection was to become our walkway into a lifetime of courageous steps toward true freedom ,not fear. Fear has to take a walk in the presence of His freedom.
Do not fear for I am with you. Do not look anxiously about you for I am your God. Surely I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
