Courage Required

 

 

Now they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was going before them; and they were amazed. And as they followed they were afraid.  Mark 10:32

 If you are a Christian and you are bored you may want to check the distance between you and Jesus. His disciples were simultaneously amazed and afraid, but never bored. Amazing things await those who have the courage to follow closely. Learn what you need to, prayerfully make the necessary plan of action then take the next step with the attitude of boldness. Knowledge unapplied is no more effective than ignorance. Your courage to risk it, step out of your comfort zone into the unknown, and trust God alone is the dynamic, moment-by-moment, wonderful adventure you were born again for. Like the Promised Land, the land of promises fulfilled belongs only to the courageous.  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9
