Because of Christ and our faith in Him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. Ephesians 3:12 NLT
Sometimes we feel afraid, crippled and worried by fear. Anxious thoughts weigh us down and convince us we will never be STRONG. But God knows what is holding us back from finding COURAGE. He helps us examine our hearts and learn how it feels to be BRAVE. He reminds us we were created for so much more than living without His holiness.
It’s comforting to know God IS with us! We don’t have to live on our own. 1 Corinthians 16:13 says,” Be on your guard; stand firm in the FAITH; be men of COURAGE; be STRONG. We can rise above the frailties of doubt.
FAITH allows us to remember who GUIDES and PROVIDES. It helps us focus on Jesus. It gives us freedom to experience how it feels to be led to the presence of God. It opens our hearts for His will.
God will arm us with everything we need to learn how to TRUST. He will battle what’s wounding our souls. He WILL show us how to leave worries behind and give clarity for our goals.
If you’re feeling weary and lack the confidence to boldly step in FAITH, please don’t waste time feeling afraid. Call on God! He WILL help you! He is HERE and HE loves us. Nothing can separate us from the mighty love of our Father. He is SO much BIGGER than our fear.
Dear God, we humbly thank YOU for helping us examine our hearts and see what’s missing. Forgive us when we forget to boldly step in FAITH. We will fear NO MORE as we learn to follow Jesus and find COURAGE to be FAITHFUL and BRAVE. Give us STRENGTH like a lion and help us become more CONFIDENT. You are an amazing Father! We love YOU so very much. Thank you for loving us through weakness and covering us with Your mercy and grace. Amen
