Courage is not an emotion, it’s a state of mind. Strengthen yourself in the provision of My Word and its powerful promises. Doing this will cause you to stay focused on My ability instead of your own. Remaining connected to Me provides you with a place of safety. Be aware that acting like all is well is simply avoiding the fact that there are giants closing in on you. This behavior does not help, in fact, it depletes your stamina. I am strong and in Me, you have the power to bring down all that stands against you.
This is My command: be strong and courageous. Never be afraid or discouraged because I am your God, the Eternal One, and I will remain with you wherever you go.
— Joshua 1:9 (VOICE)
