You Make Me Brave
"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline." 2 Timothy 1:7
As relentless as the waves of the ocean, so is God's steadfast love for you. It will not relent. It will not weaken. With each day that He breathes life into your body, He will pour out His love over you. You will be overcome with the gifts of the Holy Spirit in your life when you surrender to Christ and allow His love and power to wash over you.
Your sinful nature causes fear and doubt and timidity to take root in your life...but Jesus has not given you a spirit of timidity. He has given you a spirit of power and love and self-discipline.
No fear can overtake His power.
No doubt can withstand His unwavering assurance.
Allow God's love and spirit to come into your life today, and He will take your spirit of timidity and will make you brave:
Brave enough to stand for what you believe.
Brave enough to trust Him when you do not understand.
Brave enough to surrender your desires for His will so that you may step forth into the purpose for which He has called you.
Trust in Jesus to pave the way to where you are destined to go, and be self-disciplined to follow His leading. Dive into quiet time with God each day, and ask for Him to reveal His plan for your life, day by day, moment by moment. He will give you wisdom and discernment to understand where you are to go, and you must be obedient.
And know that Christ's perfect love casts out all fear, and will fill you with an overflowing measure of goodness and grace.
Do not be afraid, for He will make you BRAVE.
Allow yourself to hear the words of this song, and let your Savior speak to you in the quietness of your heart today: https://youtu.be/6Hi-VMxT6fc
