Birth verse for February 1: ...be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 2:1

PrayFit Devotional: Strong and Courageous; Jan 31, 13; Read: 2 Tim 1
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” –2 Timothy 1:7

Imagine a coach before a big game. The team has taken a knee and their helmets are off as they await the last few words of encouragement. The coach stands before them and says, “Now listen up, boys. We got here as a team and we’ll finish as one. I believe in you. But…I gotta admit, I think the other coach is smarter than me, and the other kids, well, they’re a lot bigger than you. But hey, it was a fun season. Try not to get hurt. Now, let’s go!”

Not much confidence in those words, right? Aren’t we glad that’s not how God sends us off into the world to tackle our biggest foes — foes of health issues, financial hardships, relationship battles and good old fear and doubt. On the contrary, if God had a blackboard, He’d outline our daily route…straight to the cross. His pre-game words would be the same today as they were yesterday: “Be strong and courageous, for I am with you wherever you go” (Josh 1:9) and “I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Question: The Bible is full of wonderful verses that remind us of God’s strength, love and guidance. What is your favorite?
