Yet our God gave us the courage to declare His Good News to you boldly, in spite of great opposition. 1 Thessalonians 2:2(NLT)
Moses, one of the greatest heroes of Biblical history, did not start out as a very courageous man. He killed an Egyptian in secret and when faced with what he had done, ran away from Egypt and his past. When met with a burning bush, he cowered in fear, and when God told Him to speak to the Hebrew children for him, Moses pleaded with God to send his brother Aaron instead. We don’t know where courage comes from, anyone can answer that call, but to be courageous for the Lord, takes a God-Made Man. Moses could not have faced Pharaoh and led the Israelites to freedom without God leading his life. The heroes of the New Testament could not have left the Upper Room without God leaving the Holy Spirit in charge of their hearts. There are many powerful men, but none more so than those who emerge from the powerhouse of God.
