The Pretty and Necessary – Beloved Women – July 6, 2021
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9 ESV
Sometimes, God will call you to...
Do something that's never been done, like Noah.
Help set others free, like Moses.
Say something that must be said, like Esther.
Start a movement, like Peter.
When confronted with the challenge to break out of the boxes of our society, cultural norms, and family routines of mediocrity, it takes courage!
It takes more than just wanting to do something radical; it takes perseverance and unashamed grit! It takes determination to rise above and do something that no one thinks you are capable of!
Though we may feel nervous to go into uncharted territories, like Joshua, we cannot retreat! We know that when we walk into what God is telling us to do, it is not a trap or snare! For surely, He knows the plans He has for us AND they are good! (Jeremiah 29:11)
Dear God, I thank you for being with me every moment! I praise you for being intentional in creating me. As you start to reveal your will for my life, please give me the courage to move forward. In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen.
What’s stopping you from doing something courageous for God?
