Courageous or Fearful?

A friend said, "Larry, I ask the Lord daily to give me the courage to die." I suppose you're going to die whether you have courage or not. Knowing the man well I comforted him as best I could and kept my thoughts to myself. My thoughts are based upon living and observing the passing scene.

Most who need the courage to die in most cases fail to have the courage to live. Paralyzing or dismaying fear is the opposite of courage. The Lord warned Joshua about that kind of fear. Life has no peace or victory for the poor soul who is as Twain said, "afeared."

In order to have peace, we must learn to confront our fears, trust the Lord and move on, often in endeavors that are danger filled. We are afraid of storms, drought, the president, falling, or peer disapproval. Even some who appear courageous are so only due to the nauseating fear of moving through life un-noticed. Their seeming acts of courage are in reality driven by this greater fear.

Amelia Earhart said, "Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace." Jesus dealt with this type of fear when He walked on the stormy sea and spoke to His disciples who thought He was a ghost/spirit which they feared even more than the storm. Matthew 14:27 "But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid."
