“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.” –Joshua 1:7
Courageous people learn to live from their heart, even when it doesn’t make sense. They learn to trust the Holy Spirit’s leading inside them. Having the consistent courage to do this, however, can be difficult. That’s why God wants us to encourage each other. Every time we encourage others—and even ourselves!—we strengthen the courage to live from our hearts.
