COURAGE

Courage

When we have to face trials and tribulations, God will provide the courage to meet our needs.
When we read 1 samuel 17,we can see Gods supernatural strength in action in the life of David, As he faced Goliath, he never considered defeat an option.
David was a man of great courage.
 People of courage refuse to look for ways of escape.
If you are thingking about defeat.Then you will loose every time.
Men and women of courage know their success lies with our unshakeable God.

At times David had faced enemies just as cruel as Goliath. In the moments before the battle, David recalled how God had strengthened him in the past to kill both a lion and a bear. He expected the same sort of help to strengthen him against Goliath.at this time
Courage is a result of having the right attitude. David realized he could not win in his own strength. He knew God had to be with him or he would suffer defeat.

Courageous people recall past victories and God’s faithfulness.
Courageous people look to God and trust His guidance.
David’s brothers mocked him. Saul doubted him Goliath made fun of him
But david did not care their negative talk.He trusted In God.
Genuine courage is not shiver by inner fears . The person of courage isn’t interested in those who refuse to believe God.
 Take time to study God’s Word and apply His principles to your life.
You can always face your problems with the help of the God’s Word.

A courageous person use the resources available at hand .
David chose five stones and a slingshot as his weapons to defeat Goliath

A person can face an opponent with confidence ,that God will ultimately give him or she success if they obeys Him. When we face life’s trials as David did, by faith, we become men and women of courage.

Get to Know God

We can learn him Through The Creation.How planets whirl around the heavens and and never clash into each other.See how carefully the human body is put together.
Human being is created in his image.
Through the Bible we should come to know him very well.
St John Ch 8 Vs 54 Say- s Jesus answered, ‘If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me, he of whom you say, “He is our God”, 55though you do not know him. But I know him; if I were to say that I do not know him, I would be a liar like you. But I do know him and I keep his word.
Jesus was saying that that the jews did not aware about the God the father.It is True.They had never met Him personally.But Jesus knew Him Intimately.
John 1
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God.
So he spent time with the Father.Infact He spent all of eternity with Him.
The fellowship had between the Father and Son.

StJohn Ch 14 Vs 6 Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.7If you know me, you will know* my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.’
If you know Jesue you will become better acquainted with God the Father.
1St John Ch5 vs20 says
20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may know him who is true;* and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
