Courage has often been mistaken for absence of circumstances that stir up fearlful thoughts and emotions. On the contrary courage is shown in the presence of these circumstances. Courage is the ability to master the fearful thoughts and emotions then take action. When the children of Israel were overtaken by the fearful thoughts Caleb and Joshua demonstrated a courageous spirit as they told them to halt their talk that was inspired by fear. Through this courageous spirit they were able to possess the promised land. Put your effort into denying fear and fearful thoughts to ruin your life as you develop a courageous spirit.
SCRIPTURE READING: Numbers 13:30 Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once and possess it; we are well able to conquer it.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, help me to develop a courageous spirit as you teach me to depend on you in every situation in Jesus Name, Amen.
