Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

"I walk through this sinful world as a 
pilgrim in a foreign country" - CH Spurgeon
Probably the hardest thing that our Lord and Savior told us to do is to "love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you," (Matthew 5:44), and this week we have a lot to pray for. The tribulation continues unabated for our brothers and sisters in the Middle East, Africa, China, and India.

Today we have people which we as Americans find it even harder to love and pray for - such as Micah Johnson who shot 12 Dallas police officers, killing five of them. And for Barack Hussein Obama who's "Shoot off your mouth now, blame the cops, get the facts later" approach which started soon after his election by saying the "Police acted stupidly" when Cambridge police responded to a breaking and entering call. His anti-police rhetoric reached it's zenith with the riots in Ferguson Missouri and the formation of Black Lives Matter which now has become a terrorist organization. (Of course to me, this says everything you need to know about Obama) Still, Romans 31:1 says Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. So not only are we to love and pray for our leaders, we are to thank God for them.
