Between my thoughts and my actions spans another world.
The Land of Courage.
In this Land of Courage, I have strength. Strength to take my thoughts of good and right and turn those good intentions into deeds of righteousness. In the Land of Courage, I have power to beat back those thoughts of evil and unkindness and refuse to turn them into works of darkness.
Where will I live today? Where will you live today? In the Land of Courage?
A world away is as close as a choice.
2 Chronicles 32: 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
6 And he set captains of war over the people, and gathered them together to him in the street of the gate of the city, and spoke comfortingly to them, saying,
7 “Be strong and courageous. Be not afraid nor dismayed by the king of Assyria and all the multitude that is with him, for there are more with us than with him.
8 With him is an arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.

ABBA, thank You for this picture of words on the screen of my mind; I pray it will sink into my heart and I will live in the Land of Courage today so my right thoughts will be turned into deeds of righteousness and those evil darts of the enemy will be rejected and expelled and I will know victory for Your Honor and glory and for my good and the good of Your Kingdom. I pray all who come here to read and to pray today will also take up the challenge to live in the Land of Courage today. And today we boldly bring our sick and afflicted asking You to heal them and asking You to rescue, to pursue and woo until the rebellious and oblivious surrender to live in the Land of Courage with You, LORD JESUS. I pray too for the Peace of Israel and for the subduing of all Her enemies; and for America, I praise and thank You for birthing this great Nation and I ask that You have mercy and pour out Your Spirit upon us, pouring out the power of conviction and conversion to live in the Land of Courage found only in JESUS. Amen and amen.
We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
