Words For Courageous Living


The other day, while driving, I hit a sparrow. Obviously it was killed. I did not mean to kill the bird, it was just that we were both at the wrong place at the right time. It did, however, cause me to reflect upon the Word of God which says, "Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid neither be dismayed; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:6)

What does that have to do with my killing the sparrow? In this way - If, according to the Word, a sparrow can not fall to the ground without God knowing it, then that means I have the attention of the Almighty.

So, if He is aware of me, then I should be of good courage. God is with you, my friend, right now - yep, where you are. So no matter where you are, or who are you, God has assured you of His presence. It is true, no matter how high one goes in the sky, or how deep one goes in the ocean, one can't get away from God.

So be of good courage. Be not afraid of the difficulties that are in your life, or the trial through which you are going. Things might really be bad, but please acknowledge God with you. You have a friend in Him.

Let me pray for you.

Lord, I ask, in Jesus' name that this one be especially blessed and be given great assurance. May they know of your concern over them - they are not forgotten. Because if you know of the fallen sparrow, you certainly know of this special, dear one.
