One of our LORDS Ways is ‘I can be Brave’ (Ways of Learning). In the Bible, there is the story of David and Goliath, where David overcomes his fear and wins victory over the giant, Goliath. We could look at Goliath as representing the giant fears that we might have in our own lives eg anxiety, a difficult conversation, public speaking, or a health challenge. God gives us the strength to face these fears with bravery, to give light to darkness. The courage to ‘show up’ when life is difficult can make a braver with each step we take.
So be encouraged by the words of Deuteronomy 31:6 “ Be strong and of good courage, do not be afraid, for the Lord your God, he is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
