SUPERNATURAL COURAGE

WHY DO WE WANT THIS COURAGE?

Hear the Word of The Lord, (Psalms 27:1)  "The Lord is the stronghold of my life - - of whom shall I be afraid?  When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident."  

  1. GODLY COURAGE STOPS YOUR FEARS WITH POWER (1 Timothy 1:7)
  2. GODLY COURAGE PARALLELS HIS PRESENCE (Deuteronomy 31:6) GOD GOES WITH YOU

SO WHEN YOU ARE TEMPTED TO FEAR, AND WE ALL ARE, AND ANXIETY COMES KNOCKING, WHAT CAN YOU DO?   

WHERE DO YOU GET THE SUPERNATURAL COURAGE YOU NEED???

  1. PUT YOUR HOPE IN GOD (1Corintians 13:13) UNDERSTAND THAT HOPE IS A GIFT FROM HEAVEN. ASK GOD FOR HIS HOPE IN PRAYER. 
  2. LOOK TO HEAVEN (2Corinthians 5:8) USING PAUL AS AN EXAMPLE, WE CONSIDER OUR ULTIMATE FOE AS A TRANSITION TO OUR ULTIMATE GAIN - ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD.
  3. OBEY GOD EXPECTING YOUR "GOD CONFIDENCE" TO RISE UP.  DISTANCE YOURSELF FROM SIN AND DARKNESS SO THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD WILL ARISE IN YOUR SOUL.

Joshua 1:9  "Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for The Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

FINAL THOUGHT: WHEN JESUS WAS TEMPTED TO FEAR HE PRAYED MORE EARNESTLY AND SO SHOULD WE!  WHEN YOU GENUINELY CONNECT WITH ALMIGHTY GOD YOUR SOUL WILL BE EDIFIED - BUILT UP AND COURAGEOUS.
