Having confidence or being strong and courageous can be easier said than done. In many ways, we are programmed to care about what society thinks of us. Whether we realize it or not, we often spend time trying to "fit in." This may apply at work, with family, or even in church. Even though we are part of the world, we must be willing to stand up for what is right even if it is not popular!
We can follow God's commands and His will for our lives. Following God may require us to take a step of faith. We need to trust God. In trusting God, we can be comforted, strengthened, and encouraged. God will always be with us, but we have to be willing to listen and do as He has called us. When we follow God, our actions may not always be popular or easy. However, if we listen and follow God, we know we will meet with success for God's Kingdom!
Follow God with trust and courage that He will lead to success!
Thank You for the courage and strength that You provide in my life. Help me to listen and follow Your will for the sake of Your Kingdom. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
