ReadThen someone came and said, “Look! The men you put in jail are standing in the temple courts teaching the people.” (Acts 5:25)
Is there something that Christ has called me to that fear is getting in the way of? I am sure the apostles knew the consequences of their actions and had some fears in the midst of their obedience. Just like them, we must choose to obey Christ rather than our own fears or insecurities.
Lord, you know all my fears and insecurities. Please give me the courage to move forward with all you have called me to be. When I am afraid, help me put my trust in you. Give me the boldness of Peter and the apostles to stay on mission, even when life is incredibly hard.
