There is a saying that reads, "We are never certain of courage until we are tested with a crisis." The American people have been subjected to so many crises via the ObaMARXIST BADministration, that there is no wonder people see themselves under much stress and pressure, thus, being drained of mental, moral, and even physical strength to deal with it all.
Whenever I feel stressed about all the turmoil and chaos going on in our nation and the world, I reach for my Bible and study the courage passages.
It helps me to store up my own courage when dealing with everything that is being inflicted upon us, as well as all the lies and corruption being used by this BADministration and their minions who continue to wreak havoc.
The fact that many in the media of mass deception are complicit in such propaganda makes things even worse. No one is held accountable for the extremely important scandals that have happened (i.e. Fast and Furious, NSA spying, IRS targeting of Conservatives and TEA Party organization applying for tax exempt status, the Benghazi cover-up, and now the disastrous roll-out of the ObamaSCARE HELLcare debacle); just to name a few. But don't take my word for it, see for yourself (below)** what an absolute disaster it is!!!
However, when a person from the BADministration tweets out derogatory statements about Valerie Jarrett or Hillary Clinton, he gets fired! What is wrong with this picture??? Plenty! See* links below for more about this and other scandals. But back to the subject at hand in this post.
As Christians, we often need to be reminded of the phrase, "Be of good courage" that is written in seven different Bible verses! (Numbers 13:20; Ezra 10:4; Psalm 27:14; Psalm 31:24; and Isaiah 41:6). It isn't by chance that the phrase appears seven times in Scripture. The number 7 represents perfection in the Bible.
We are ingrained with courage when we study those verses, as well as while reading others like: "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid...for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you." (See Joshua in Deuteronomy 31 and Joshua 1)
The promises of Jesus Christ, the refuge of our God, and the hope that is in us inspires us to strengthen our resolve to serve the Lord, come what may.
