Be Strong and Courageous

Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dis­mayed; with us is the Lord our God, to help us, and to fight our battles.

2 CHRONICLES 32:7,8


WE fling aside the weight and sin,

Resolved the victory to win;

No shrinking from the desperate fight,

No thought of yielding or of flight;

With the brave heart and steady eye,

We onward march to victory.

HORATIUS SONAR


IF you, your heart, your will, are enlisted on the good side, if you are wishing and trying that the good in you should conquer the bad, then you are on the side of God Himself, and God is on your side; and "if God be for us, who shall be against us?" Take courage, then. If thou dislikest thy sins, so does God. If thou art fighting against thy worst feelings, so is God. On thy side is God who made all, and Christ who died for all, and the Holy Spirit who alone gives wisdom purity, nobleness. How canst thou fail when He is on thy side? On thy side are all spirits of just men made perfect, all wise and good souls in earth and heaven, all good and wholesome influences, whether of nature or of grace, of matter or of mind. How canst thou fail if they are on thy side?
