How to ensure success in 2014: Courage (Part 3)

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 April 2024

Psalm 3:5
‘I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.’

There are times in our lives when courage fails us. These are times when we lose courage and get weak. Courage gives us strength. Courage failure makes us weak.

2 Samuel 4:1 When Saul’s son, heard that Abner was dead in Hebron, his courage failed, and all the Israelites were troubled and dismayed.

It is possible to have times when our courage fails us. The loss of courage leads to being troubled and dismayed and ultimately weak. Dismay gives way to discouragement and discouragement to despair. Despair in turn leads to depression and depression leads to a sense of hopelessness. ‘COURAGE FAILURE’ is a condition that is terminal if we do not recover, pick up the pieces and go forward again.
