You may be facing some frightening obstacles today and feel like you want to stay in bed. If this describes you, you need God’s courage. Know that you can get through the day because courage is not the absence of fear, it is the abundance of faith, and faith always comes when you’re close to Jesus.

I hope you can say that you would rather have your difficulties, than not have them at the expense of knowing Christ. I pray that he be that important and urgent in your life.
