Courage

James 5:7

James 5:7

Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.

After Thought

We are called to be patient but alert. A believer knows the season but not the specific time of His arrival.

2 Kings 1:8

2 Kings 1:8

They answered him, "He was a hairy man with a leather girdle bound about his loins." And he said, "It is Elijah the Tishbite.

After Thought

The Hebrew word describing Elijah literally means "lord of hair." It is believed he dressed differently than others to show contempt for the accepted norms of the time. He purposefully stood out in the crowd.

Isaiah 54:4

Isaiah 54:4

Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.

After Thought

We do not have anything to fear at the final destination of life. Jesus has gone before us to prepare a place for us where there are no tears or sorrow.

2 Chronicles 15:7

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.

Anything done to the glory of God always sets in motion a rendezvous with future blessing.
