God's children have courage even in the worst of situations; they will not lose faith in their God because they trust in the Lord and His promise to see them through it; they know that God will avenge their sufferings; their enemies will suffer punishment for any wrong against them..God gives us victory. Jesus told his disciples of the pain and suffering they would endure; the trials, tribulations, and persecutions that would come to them because of their allegiance to Him; but he encouraged them; and told them not to fear because He had overcome the world; nothing in the world could separate us from His love. That no matter what we go through; our eternal fate/life is secure with Him (because of his death on the cross). The Holy Ghost fills believers with the courage they need to speak boldly about Christ and His word. Courage helps us represent Christ. God has a plan for every purpose and mission He sends his children on. We need not be afraid of having need; for He will provide a way and supply our needs. So, we do not need to worry about who will go with us; he will have prepared a companion for any mission we're sent on; and all will go accordingly as planned; for God's will will be done. Christians should be courageous. Even if you feel that you are not able or capable to express God's words or instruction, He encourages us to pray for the ability to do so. His word says "ask, and ye shall receive" the Lord gives us freely whatever it is that we need to fulfill His purpose in our lives. We need not be afraid to go to the Lord our God with a petition or request for strength or abilities to fulfill our tasks; the Lord will grant us whatever we need to be used as His vessel; to reach out to the world. We can pray to God with confidence and not be ashamed or afraid.
I hope this study is useful to anyone who feels discouraged or ashamed. You do not need to be afraid; God know's your heart and who you are; He wants to hear your prayer; He will give you what you need. May you and yours be blessed..until next time..
