You are familiar with the classic movie, “The Wizard of Oz.” Enroute to the land of Oz, Dorothy meets the Tin-man, the Scarecrow and the Lion. Each one needs something. The Lion needed courage.
The Lion isn’t the only one that needed courage. Everyone needs courage. We need it more at times than others but everyone needs courage.
In I Thessalonians, the apostle Paul said that although they had been treated badly in Philippi, they came to Thessalonica anyway. Paul said that God gave them “courage..”
You may be facing something today that you are kind of nervous about. Today, you may need an extra dose of courage. Just as God gave Paul courage, he gives us courage as well.
Someone has said that courage is being afraid but saddling up anyway. The Lion needed courage and we need it as well. Ask the Lord for the courage needed for whatever you are facing.
