Be of Good Courage.....

Do you recall the verse from Joshua that says, "Be of good courage?" Just in case you aren't familiar with it, the actual reference for this is Joshua 1:9. It says, and I quote; "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

So, if God is telling us that, no matter where we are, shouldn't we follow suit? Hmmm. Here is the thing. We know that God is always with us intellectually, but have we gotten that experientially? Do we really follow His leading, or are just out there doing our own thing? 

Who Has Your Back?

Have you ever wondered who is really on your side? I am not talking about God, we already know that. Yet again that is something we know intellectually, but what about your friends and family? Are they really here for you? 

We talk about this a lot in our humanness, but we already know the answer. We know that we cannot count on human beings to always do the right thing. It would seem as though we would stop trusting in what mankind can do for us, and just focus on what God has for us. 

Now that we know how to live, and we know what is right to do, how about sharing that with others? Have you ever shared the good news with someone? Let's take that a step further. Let's say you are NOT a christian, and you really don't consider yourself to be religious. 

Would you help someone in need? Help them change a tire? Would you help show them the way when they are in a difficult time? It doesn't take God for us to do the right thing. If we know what the right thing is, and we choose NOT to do it, then we are in the wrong no matter what. 

Even if others don't do the right thing, do it any how. Even if others don't show  compassion to you, show it to others regardless. Make sense? 

Don't worry so much about who has your back, but here  are a few things you can do: 
  1. Let God be God and do His thing 
  2. Always, always help others 
  3. Work at being a better servant to others 
  4. Wear encouraging t-shirts, and let people know what you stand for 

We can't teach you in person just yet how to be better at life, but we are here to encourage you! Want to wear your courage? Wouldn't you love to share a positive message no matter where you go? If so, then CLICK HERE now to learn more! 

Until next time, Live Courageously!
