Singles need to ask God for courage, confident that he will provide it
When we're praying, we singles don't ask God for courage as often as we should.
Too many TV programs and movies have convinced us that being afraid is something to be ashamed of. In fact, we're even ashamed to admit our secret fears to God.
He knows them anyway. Nobody knows the dangers of this world better than the One Who Knows Everything. There is much to fear, both seen and unseen.
Why there's money
That's when you need to ask God for courage, and keep asking.
We need to ask God for courage, knowing that we can't summon it up on our own. Our courage does not come from our own abilities, but from God's.
Reread the scripture verse above. Did you notice why we can be courageous? "For the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
Whew! That's a relief!
We quickly forget that the most powerful being in the universe is on our side. It's like having an invincible bodyguard.
Now that doesn't mean you can take unnecessary chances, but it does assure you that you're not alone. The fears that you magnify are no match for God. He wants to help you defeat them.
Never forget this truth: When you ask God for courage, he will give it to you, because it's a quality his son Jesus had, and God wants to conform you to the character of his son.
From now on, make this request in your daily prayers, fully confident that the Sovereign Lord of the Universe is with you and for you, wherever you go.
