Hi Reign Forest Friends,
This past Sunday, we started our new theme on “Courage”.
In Exodus 2:1-10, we discover that Moses was born during a time when Pharaoh feared that God’s people would overthrow his reign. He enslaved them and commanded that all of the Hebrew baby boys be killed. Moses’ mother and sister wouldn’t obey Pharaoh’s decree. They had courage to keep Moses alive. God rescued him with help from Pharaoh’s own daughter who ended up bringing him to live in the palace and raising him as an Egyptian.
Bottom Line: You can do what you should even when you don’t know what will happen next. Most of the time our fear comes from assuming something about the future that may or may not happen. Courage doesn’t mean our fear is gone. Rather, courage is choosing to act even though we are afraid. We’ll never know what will happen next, but we can trust God to give us the strength we need to move forward.
Memory Verse: So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24 NLT
We ended our time together with writing down some of our own fears. We gave these fears to God and prayed for strength and courage to keep moving forward.
