Faith and courage...
Written By Willie Jolley
"Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God's presence." -Ephesians 3:12
I love the story about the two evil brothers, Fear and Doubt, who went around from house to house, knocking on people's doors. When the people would open the door, Fear and Doubt would rush in, ransack the house, and steal the dreams. They went from city to city and state to state and country to country, knocking on people's doors, rushing in, and stealing dreams.
One day, Fear and Doubt came to this beautiful big house. They thought, oh, that's a great place to go steal the dreams. But they did not know that it was the home of their mortal enemies, Faith and Courage. They knocked and knocked on the door, shouting, "Open this door!" Finally, the door swung open, Faith and Courage stood at the door, but there was no one there. They looked up the street and looked down the street, but there was no one there.
Why? Because, in the face of Faith and Courage, Fear and Doubt will always disappear. The number one thing to remember is that, when dreaming big dreams, all we have to overcome is ourselves.
Prayer: Dear Lord, give me the faith and courage to face each new day and each new dream that you place in my heart. Amen.
Devotion: Describe a time when you have overcome fear and doubt with faith and courage?
