2 Timothy 1:7 "For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control."
Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Courage comes in many forms and is required at times we may never realize. It takes a great deal of courage to assess our lives and critique ourselves according to God's plan for us. It is simpler and safer to stay on our current path, a life of comfort and predictability.
Simple and safe is not always best. God tell us that he has a plan for us. He expects us to use the gifts he's given us, the courage and support he has provided and take the path to our destiny. We each need courage to listen to God and many times we will need the courage to ignore those around us.
Fear and caution drive many people. Many motivational speakers will tell you the pitfalls of negative opinions around you. Unbelievers will crush your courage and magnify the fear inside of you. Before he started Amazon, Jeff Bezos told his boss about his idea for an online bookstore. Bezos boss told him it was a great idea for someone who didn't have a fantastic job like the one Jeff currently had. Imagine if Bezos had listened to his boss instead of gathering his courage and taking a step into the unknown? What if Steve Jobs had accepted defeat after getting fired from Apple?
Walking with God, praying for wisdom and guidance are the foundations of happiness. But listening to God and having the courage to follow his path is the recipe for success. CFG.World helps you build that foundation of courage and teaches you to listen. Our mission is to put you on the path that God always intended for you. Join our class and pursue your destiny.
