Being Brave

0052eb8b21c2b72a9ecda86102b65d9b

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 going.
Keep believing.
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.

Trust him.
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. 

Stronger

God will give you what you need right now to fight the battle before you.

“He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18:34-35‬ ‭NIV‬‬

My prayer for you today is that you would know His love as He pours His strength into you. That you would know His peace as you lean on Him. That you would rest in God’s grace as you walk by His guidance. That you would trust Him with the future and focus simply on the task before you. That you would be released from the restlessness within you as you receive a new determination to go forward in faith.

You are stronger than you know because you know where your strength comes from and whose Right Hand sustains you.

Quiet Words

“The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded than the shouts of a ruler of fools.”

‭‭Ecclesiastes ‬ ‭9:17 NIV‬

If you are looking for good advice, ask the quiet person you respect.

Ask the one who knows you and knows Jesus.

Ask the one who doesn’t offer their opinion at every opportunity but rather waits for permission to speak into your life.

Ask the questions you need answers to. If they are wise, they are safe. Seek them out.

If they are loud, manipulative, believe they are always right and get mad when you don’t do what they say…avoid them.

Don’t let fear stop you from getting the guidance you need.

You are worth it.

Who has God put in your path to help you?

Trust

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.

Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:5, 6 NLT)

If you are questioning if you should wait until you can figure it out yourself or if you should trust God and obey what He has already told you to do: obey and trust.

Take the first step in faith and the path will open up to you.
