Keep Up Your Courage

That night the Lord stood near him and said, “Keep up your courage!” — Acts 23:11a.

Today’s lesson is perfectly timed.

We all face trials in life, and God’s message to Paul is what we need to hear. Peter and his disciples heard “do not be afraid from Christ as he walked across the water. Paul heard God’s comforting message when he was jailed. MLK Jr. heard the same message when his house was bombed.

No matter what the nature of your trial God stands ready to comfort and remind you to “keep up your courage.” I’m reminded of my friend Vernon”s mother’s advice — “The good Lord never gives you a load you can’t tote.”

When we face one of the many trials that life gives you, remember to pick up the load and “keep your courage.”
