This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9, NLT
Here is a mental stimulus of tremendous power, which, if received and retained in your consciousness, will give you courage to overcome every difficulty. Nothing can ever dismay you. You may question whether mere words can accomplish so great a result, but never minimize the creative force of an active idea. A mental concept has more voltage than electricity; civilizations are changed by ideas. Emerson said, “Beware of an idea whose time has come.”
~ ~ Norman Vincent Peale
In whatever God calls us, stand strong, be courageous, and go forward. You know that if he’s in it you already have what’s needed to accomplish any goal, mental concept or active idea. And do not be discouraged in the wait – God is working on it.
Reflect: How do you overcome fear and discouragement? How do you press on to the things God has for you?
