I love my Sunday mornings. I do not have a home church as of yet, so I grab my coffee and note pad and listen to a sermon via podcast. In the last two weeks, I have listened to services from Bridgeway Church in Maryland.
The pastor both times has been David Anderson. He starts his sermon by quoting a man that just faced down a bear.
I wish I were as brave as Carl, but I am not. I have fears and worries. I want to be brave and face each day, confident that God walks beside me and is in control, and I do 90% of the time. How do I maintain this confidence 100% of the time? I need to follow David Anderson’s advice. He said we need to develop a courageous heart. We need to take courage. He says we can do this in 4 ways.
*T-Trust that God is in control. (I remind myself of this constantly)
*A-Act courageously to do what must be done. (I am trying to get all the things I need to do completed)
*K-Kneel before God and claim his promises. (I don’t always kneel but I do pray)
*E-Encourage yourself. (For me that means devotional time, music and enjoying life)
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, on the Lord.
So that is our assignment for this day and the rest of our lives. Trust, act, kneel and encourage.
Good advice, David, Thank You!
Happy Monday Everyone
