“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”

– Psalm 27:13

In times like these, I think it’s more important than ever to be courageous. Though such a virtue may seem incongruous with the mandate to stay inside and practice social distancing, I dare say that there has never been a better moment than the present to face life with resolve and bravery. Let me explain. The word courage comes from the french word coeur, which means to live from the heart. In essence, such a posture towards existence means that even if your body is exhausted and your mind can’t take anymore, you choose to embrace the voice inside of you that is determined to press on against all odds. Courage doesn’t necessarily mean skydiving or tightrope walking; instead, it is a state of heart. True bravery has everything to do with your outlook in times such as these. While the voices around you tell you to be afraid and prompt you to spend every waking moment envisioning worst case scenarios, courage is the choice to believe and hope for the best. It’s acting on faith that God’s promises are true, and living each day, even in quarantine, to the fullest.

My friend, courage is available to you right now through Jesus Christ! In the midst of a global crisis, when good news seems to be all but lost, He invites you to rest in the strength of His unchanging nature and to expect good things, even if you can’t see them. Since He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, His Word is as true as it’s ever been, and all of His promises are still yes and amen. As you exercise trust in His goodness and live from a place of faith, courage is built up on the inside of you. When you walk confidently forward, even in the presence of uncertainty, you have the power to influence and impact the lives of everyone you “touch” in this season.


Jesus, I want my heart to be filled with divine courage, so give me the faith to act in assurance of your promises.


How can you exercise courage in this uncertain time?

  1. Thank you Bobby. Praying for your family and the entire church family. Don’t take chances. I’d rather see you preach to a wall than for anyone to risk their lives (or your going to jail.)
