In living dangerously, one must know the strength from within is not freely given, but earned.
- Earned through choices made
- Earned through tests failed and passed
- Earned when obstacles come we continue walking
- Earned by jumping off cliffs conquering our fears
Bravery is a courageous spirit, a will to fight when we have every reason to give up. Our actions become a weapon in a moment of decision to soar to move forward without thought of what others think.
Our relationship with our Heavenly Father is much like living dangerously as we put one step in front of the other. We must remain trusting forever in His way, denying our own flesh, and listening to that still small voice that keeps us walking in faith and obedience.
It is not a rewarding practice but a life-giving ~ life changing process that continually forgoes . . . our mind that forever gets in the way, our flesh that is like sandpaper to our spirit . . .
Making a conscious effort to do the NOT so popular, the eyebrow raising, skin crawling thing that we know deep down inside is the one choice that will unlock our chains of bondage and lead us to the path of freedom . . .
How many reasons will give yourself for not stepping out, for not conquering your fears? How many excuses will you give God for not believing, not taking action as a weapon in this spiritual battle we daily fight?
I urge you to make this week a week that stretches your faith . . . shapes your thoughts . . . sculpts your heart . . . allow a woman of strength to rise above all things and walk in the authority that God has given you as a woman of worth, a woman of bravery, a woman capable of things through Christ who is her strength.
You will be amazed of His strength demonstrated through you in ways you’ve never thought possible.
Live dangerously ~ Be Brave
Ruth 3:11 “And now, daughter, fear not. I will do for you all you require, for all my people in the city know that you are a woman of strength (worth, bravery, capability).”
