Thought for today – 07/12/2011

“Courage is an outward display of the inward character quality of confidence. Courage is the strength to take risks, face danger, endure difficulty, or withstand fear. Notice, I didn’t say courage is an absence of fear. Rather, it withstands fear — you have to experience fear in order to be courageous! Courage seems to follow when you take God at his word, believe he’ll do what he says, remember his protection in the past, and place yourself in his care. The more faith you have in God’s power, the more courageous you’ll be.”
