This list is a progressive list, the order is important. There's a difference between courage and reckless. Most of us default to faking being courageous. Courage is when your faith is bigger than your fear. Courage is taking your fear and conquering it! Courage is knowing who fights with/for you. 2 Timothy 1:7 Power, love and self-discipline are ingredients to give you courage. God has given us his power. Take fear out of the center of your life, and replace it with courage. Identify your fear, give it to Him, and then worship. Maximize God, minimize fear. What kinds of fears am I facing that gives me an opportunity to grow my courage?
