The Holy Bible contains 33 occurrences of ‘courage’ , ‘courageous’ or ‘courageously’ and 19 occurrences of ‘brave’
Take the hint Christians! God never promised us the road to Heaven would be an easy one. He states over and over “Be strong and courageous…”
That command is necessary because Life can be painful and scary. Sickness, Loss of job, death of loved ones, terrorism all force us to rely on our knowledge of Scripture AND trust in God’s Faithfulness. Our courage comes from our trust in Him.
