About:

Courage Is God’s Secret Weapon for Your Victory

Our world is full of fear: fear of death, public speaking, flying, drowning, failure, rejection, enclosed places and countless more. Satan uses fear to steal joy, kill opportunity and destroy hope.

God has an antidote: supernatural courage.

Our favorite Bible heroes achieved results greater than their natural abilities because of bravery that came only from God. Followers of Jesus throughout history have experienced the Holy Spirit coming upon them to achieve supernatural outcomes. In Supernatural Courage, Robinson uses biblical examples, interviews and testimonies, along with Bible promises, prayers and activations, to impart spiritual bravery for strength–so you can live a life beyond what your natural abilities can accomplish.

These pages will help activate supernatural courage in you so that you can be strengthened by hope–and then persevere through overwhelming challenges, stand against intimidation, believe for the impossible, forgive amid injustice, use spiritual gifts for spiritual victories and finish the race God has given you.

Whether you need a little or a lot of courage, the Holy Spirit is ready to empower you with spiritual bravery today.

Disclaimer: A few weeks ago I watched American Gospel on Netflix. This has, and continues, to change my faith and is bringing my focus back to the Word and the Gospel. Unfortunately, I signed up to review several books by authors I don’t necessarily agree with any longer. In fairness, I am still trying to read them for gold, but now I am seeing a lot of things I never would have saw before that I no longer agree with or I am questioning. I think it’s only fair that I tell you that and the bias I am coming from.  

My thoughts:

Mickey has a very powerful testimony in how God healed him. It is hard to refute someone’s personal story. He also shares many other stories of people who had powerful encounters with the Lord.

He shared a part of his story that really confused me. Someone who was not a believer sat next to him when he was in the hospital, Mickey says…”I could feel energy flowing from him into me.” This person was not a believer. I find it concerning that a believer would think it was a positive thing to feel some sort of “energy” from an unbeliever. If the person doesn’t know Christ how could the “energy” be good? I believe there could still be an energy but that would come from a new age way of thinking, not Jesus. As a believer I wouldn’t want to feel that from someone who doesn’t know Jesus. Just my thoughts.

There is a pretty big emphasis on getting gifts and that is the only way we can be fulfilled in Christ and do what Jesus wants, that makes us a “true disciple.” All I can say living that way has left me angry at God and frustrated with my lack of manifestation. I don’t think that is what makes someone a true disciple. A true disciple is someone who sees their sin and looks to the power of the cross for forgiveness and fulfillment.
