What did Mordecai ask Queen Esther to do? (Esther 4)
Look up Psalm 56:3 and Joshua 1:9. Who gives us courage? Who should we trust?
How did Queen Esther live these verses out? (Esther 4-8)
Think of a time when you were afraid. Who can give you courage to face scary things, and how do you get it?
Who does God give courage to?
Followers of Jesus can trust that God will be there with them when they need courage to face their fears, Just like God was there when Jesus needed courage to face the cross when He died for us (Matthew 26:39). In order to be a follower of Jesus, to have His courage when we are scared we must;
A_________ that you have done wrong and ask God to forgive you for disobeying Him.
B_______ that God sent Jesus to take the punishment for your sin. Trust that you are forgiven because Jesus made you right with God
C________ to spend your whole life depending on God’s power to help you say no to sin. Rely on God to help you tell others that God is your leader and the most important person in your life.
