Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. - Joshua 1:9
Courage doesn't exempt you from being confronted with fear but exempts you from being crushed by the spirit of fear. Fear has a way of tearing a man apart and makes him lose his composure and confidence.
Understand that fear will give you multiple reasons why you shouldn't take the first step into a seemly difficult but profitable venture. But courage unveils and activates your inner strength to reach out for a good cause even when your life is put at risk. Queen Esther made the utterance, "If I perish, I perish!" when she made up her mind to seek the deliverance of the Jews in Shushan, for their escape out of the trap of their enemy.
Also know that courage gives you a giant leap and edge over a man who refuses to bring out his head because he is clouded with fear. Queen Esther took a high risk with the backing of the Most High and reaped a huge return of unprecedented favour. Why not be courageous to take that godly step of faith and experience a new beginning of joy and peace. Pray with me, “I will neither be faint nor lose courage in the days of adversity in Jesus name.
