You may think you don’t have what it takes to be courageous … but what if courage looks different than you think? The goal isn’t to remove fear completely, but to face your battles while you’re still afraid—knowing that God will never fail you or leave you.
This week, we tuned into the Loop Show to learn that we can have courage and trust God with anything we face. We learned about the time David had the courage to defeat the giant, Goliath, and discovered that there are giant-sized challenges we’ll face in our own lives. We also learned that later on in his life, David wrote about the confidence we can have in God’s strength in Psalm 20:7.
You can have confidence in God’s strength. We’re going to face some pretty big obstacles in our life. Maybe not a real Goliath, but maybe some Goliath-sized challenges. But no matter what, the Bible shows us that we can have confidence in God’s strength. With God’s help and with the help of Godly people in our life, we can face any obstacle or challenge with courage. We can use things like God’s Word, worship, and support from our friends to help overcome our fears.
At bedtime, read Psalm 20:7. Discuss the following questions together: What does it mean to have confidence in God’s strength? Would you say you have confidence in God’s strength? What makes you say that?
