Through acts of faith they toppled kingdoms, made justice work, and took the promises for themselves. Hebrews 11 :43, TM

Courage is doing all you can do-a miracle is God doing the rest! What have you done about your situation? Have you persevered in prayer? On what Scriptures are you standing? Who have you talked to? You can have comfort or you can have conflict-but you can’t have both! Life isn’t easy and it’s not fair. Mary Tyler Moore said. “Pain nourishes courage; you can’t be brave if you have only wonderful things happen to you.” She’s right!

In the worst storm of his life, Paul said to the captain, “Keep your courage-for I have faith in God that it will happen just as He told me!” (Acts 27:25, NIV). Paul made it to his destination and by God’s grace you will too. When Jehoshaphat was outnumbered 100 to 1 by the enemy-he changed his focus. “We know not what to do, but our eyes are upon Thee” (2 Chronicles 20:12). There’s your key today. Stop looking at what’s against you, and start looking at what you have going for you. Listen: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the King of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us to fight our battles” (2 Chronicles 32:7-8, NIV).

You may take a few hits and sustain a wound or two, but God says you are coming out of this stronger than you were when you went in!
