You don’t have to be brave unless you are facing something that requires it.
Being brave means that you are facing something that requires more than a step of faith, it requires a walk of faith.
It means not living by sight, not making your choices and decisions based on what is but on what can be.
Being brave means getting up every morning and keeping your word when you don’t want to. Stating your boundaries and holding to them even when you don’t feel like it. Choosing to believe new truths instead of old lies every day.
That is being brave.
Being brave is choosing to take the leap and then getting to work when your feet hit the ground.
Keep hoping and trusting God.
“I’ll be with you. I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you. Strength! Courage!”
Joshua 1:9 MSG
Don’t lean on your understanding because it can only be based on your past experience. Jesus wants to help you create a new future not help you relive the past.
Look to him for guidance.
Ask him for strength.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do and everywhere you go, he will keep you on track.
He will help you to keep going forward as you are being brave.
