It takes courage to follow God where we sense Him leading. Sometimes the path is clearly obvious – a well-worn trail blazed by the Saints that have gone before us. However, there are other times that we sense Him leading in a new direction, on a new path. In some ways, it’s not even a path; it’s an uncharted trail that has yet to be traversed.
Courage isn’t something that comes naturally to most.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
Fear is a liar.
It wants us to believe that we are subject to its power. It creeps slowly into the best part of our lives and crushes joy with its relentless fist. It often comes without invitation or warning, making its mark on our decisions and in our relationships.
