Courage and Faith (pt 2)

Yesterday, I wrote about this idea that courage is born out of a conviction that God is sovereign and God is good.  These ideas of courage and faith hold hands.  In fact, courage is the application of faith.  You exercise faith when what is unknown about your situation rises to an uncomfortable level.  This causes fear.  You exercise faith when you know the outcome of that action and you do it anyway.  Fear is a response to circumstance either known or unknown.  Faith is grounded deeper than this. Faith understands (again) that God is in control, he will accomplish his good purpose, and he wants to use me to accomplish that purpose.  Exercising faith is what we call courage. The result of courage is obedience. This is what God desires from us, but it is born out of faith.
