“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”Joshua 1:9
Before my stroke, although I was confident in many ways, I was not particularly bold in sharing my faith. So I wonder, how does someone like Carey have the boldness and courage to move forward? Simply put, he trusted God. He based his life on God’s promise to never leave him or forsake him. His life exemplifies what God may do through someone who trusts Him despite life’s challenges.
May we place our trust in God knowing that if He is for us, who can be against us? He will surely give us the courage to follow His call!
“Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God.” (William Carey, 1792)
