Deuteronomy 31:6 –
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
When was the last time you really did something courageous?
Whether it was taking a trip alone or speaking up when you knew that, someone was doing wrong, even if it meant you were risking a friendship.
Have you assisted a perfect stranger or maybe even invited someone to your home after church for Sunday dinner, that you really don’t have a relationship with other than a friendly smile each Sunday as you both enter and leave church.
And now for the Big question, when is the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone and invited someone you didn’t know to attend church with you or stopped by and asked a mom and dad that are not taking their children to church if you could pick them up each Sunday so that they can be introduced to Jesus. When is the last time you had a home Bible Study with someone that is searching for the truth?
Have you shared Jesus with someone this week or better yet today?
My concern is that we are living our lives day after day content that we are saved with no regard for those who aren’t?
Have we become so comfortable and relaxed with our saved friends that we never think of the souls that will never see or know Jesus unless we are courageous and unselfish enough to speak up.
You see it is not about us or how comfortable we are. As Christians, we must be willing to step out of our comfort zones. We must be willing to become uncomfortable for the sake of Christ. It is about Him and about them.
Those that are courageous feel fear and they move forward anyway, knowing that God is their source of strength.
If you have not done, any of these things lately, today is a great day to start to look for the opportunities that God constantly is giving us, to be courageous on His behalf. Ask him to prompt you when the opportunities present themselves so that you do not miss them, and know that he is always there as your mouth piece. He will give you the words to say. We are His hands and feet to a dark searching and confused world. Let us make it our business to give others the blessing we have already received; “The Truth about Jesus”. Stand tall and be a Woman of Great courage.
5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.
7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
