These are days to be courageous. Billy Graham once said; “Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are stiffened.” Many are watching your life, waiting for you to be courageous.
We read in Scripture that Caleb was 85 years old yet still inspired those around him. He said; “And now…the Lord has kept me alive…these forty-five years… here I am this day, eighty-five years old. Yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then…Give me this mountain of which the Lord spoke in that day (Joshua 14:10-12).” Caleb chose courage!
Let’s embrace the courage of Caleb and trust God for His strength in the midst of all that life throws at us. Refuse to allow fear to hold you back. Everyone deals with fear. Mark Twain said; “Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear~~~not absence of fear.”
Regardless of what you are going through today, look fear in the face and embrace the courage of Caleb. Then take your mountain!
