There are times in our lives in which courage must be added to our faith to give us the strength to take steps of obedience. Jarius was moved by the desperation of his dying daughter. He moved in faith and in courage, believing that Jesus was able to heal was not enough, he had to have the courage to step out in faith, to find Jesus, to make his need known and then to trust Jesus to follow him to his child. In the midst of this scene there are other acts of courage that are met by the presence of God, the power of God and ultimately the loving kindness of God. Courage is fed by God’s presence and it is the act of giving our faith legs so that it can run. Believing begins the journey but courage leads to the destination. As God called Joshua to be the new leader of Israel He promised that He would never lead Him and then He commanded courage. Trust God’s presence today and walk in courage.
