Davidisms - Courage Is Knowing What's Ahead, But Still Moving Forward

Never have Jesus’s followers been called to courage like we are today. Some people believe that courage means blindly moving ahead. Unaware of what you’re going to face. What foes and criticisms you may be up against. The dangers that lie ahead. But nothing could be further from the truth. Courage - true courage - knows clearly what’s ahead. And moves forward anyway. Courage chooses to move toward the giant, as David did Goliath. Speaking and living truth. Standing up for God and his call and purposes. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua.1:9). But the best example of courage in the Bible is found in Jesus. He fully knew what faced him on the cross. It's physical, emotional, and spiritual pain. Yet he courageously and steadfastly moved toward it anyway. It was God’s call on his life. To die for our sins. We are called to follow Jesus with the same kind of courage as he displayed for us. It will be needed in the years to come like never before.
