Captured by Courage

Fear flees in the face of Jesus.


The valley of the shadow of death.  But when he saw the wind, he was afraid.  Fear.  Held captive by fear.  The shadow of death.  Not actually death itself.  The shadow may fall on my path, but the shadow itself is not to be feared. Can a shadow do any harm except to inspire dread?  He saw the wind? How can you see the wind? The effects of the wind, sure. But the actual, physical wind?  Unlike the shadow the wind is unseen, its damage, however, is painfully evident.  Fear no evil for I am with you.  I Am.  Peter took His eyes from Jesus and fear became his focus.  Teach me to be captured by courage not held a captive to fear.
