- “Try not to worry, as this is the most unproductive of all human activities.”
- “Face each problem as it comes. You can only handle one at a time anyway.”
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives.
If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us.
We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never fly!
I asked for Strength…
One of the Happiest Moments in Life, when you find the Courage to Let Go of what You Cannot Change.
Jesus spoke the Word of God throughout his ministry. When faced with the devil’s lies and temptations, he countered with the truth of God’s Word. The spoken Word of God is like a living, powerful sword in our mouths (Hebrews 4:12), and if Jesus depended upon it to face challenges in life, so can we.
If you need encouragement from God’s Word to conquer your fears, take strength from these Bible verses about 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.
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth, And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.
Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
“Courage isn’t Having the Strength to go on, it’s Going on When You don’t have Strength.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
When trouble strikes, we sometimes forget knowing of God. We struggle to recall past answers to prayer. Only today seems real. Your suffering is never a surprise to the Lord. He knows everything we are going through. He orchestrating circumstances for His glory and your benefit, according to His good will.
