Why You Need Courage (2)

Why You Need Courage (2)

 “Be strong and of good courage.”                                      Jos 1:6 NKJV

Joshua discovered four reasons why you need to be strong and demonstrate courage. Yesterday we looked at the first two. Today let’s look at the next two: (3) For the sake of others. People are watching you. They want to know if you’ll face the situation with courage or buckle before it in fear. Your ability to demonstrate faith in the midst of difficulties will give them courage. The battle is not just about you, it’s about those God has planned to bless through you. You may not have money or fame, but you have—influence. The attitudes you display and the decisions you make will influence your children and your grandchildren. You say, “But I am afraid.” We all experience fear. But the Psalmist declared, “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You” (Ps 56:3 NKJV). (4) For your enemies’ sake. David wrote: “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies” (Ps 23:5 NKJV). God will not only fight for you, He will vindicate you in the eyes of your critics. It’s good to have critics and competitors. Sometimes a foe can press you into victory where a friend cannot. Who would ever have heard of David, without Goliath? Who would have known about Moses, if there had been no Pharaoh oppressing God’s people? And what would have been known about Esther, without Haman’s evil plot against the Jews? What’s your dream? Is there an enemy standing between you and its fulfillment? Dare to confront them and they will become an instrument in God’s hand to press you into your destiny.

Not particularly. I might us one if it had a cap of say, $5 tritaacnsons, linked to an account that would be limited to very small withdrawls, and didn't cost me any extra, but I could also just pull a $5 out of my back pocket - Less stuff to go wrong there.ColtCCO

Interesting, there seem to be a few similar sites out there, I personally didn t realise the whole pixel ad thing was so big! I guess Alex Tew made money with this concept. Similar to Pixelotto, here s another example: Pixel Draws. I think it looks a bit more realistic because they don t try to give away $1m (I doubt Pixelotto will ever reach that, it s still at $152,300 now), they give away $1,000 at a time over 3 years (your entry is re-used every time as a player). Does anyone else know of these kinds of sites? I think Pixel Draws just got started, so I ll be interested to see if they sell ads given they re not as well known as Alex.cheers,Mich
