Being Brave

My daughter was hoping to work in an emergency room. So she took the opportunity to follow an emergency nurse as she worked one day.

A person who had a serious eye injury came to the emergency room. The staff asked my daughter to help treat the patient. It was a bad injury, and my daughter did not want to look at it. The nurse told her, “None of us here want to look at this bad injury. But if you want to work in an emergency room, you must be brave.”

Being brave is when something frightens you, but you do it anyway. God wants us to be brave and follow Him. Psalm 31:24 says, “Be strong and brave, all of you who are waiting for the Lord’s help.” We need to be brave as we stand up for God and face people who hate God and His Word.

Be brave for God today. He will be with you. “The Lord protects those who are loyal to him” (verse 23b).
