Courageous Faith

“Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them” Joshua 1:6, NLT

Settle this in your heart today: “I am who God says I am. I have what God says I have. I can do what God says I can do, and I will be what God says I will be. There’s nothing too hard for me, because there’s nothing too hard for God!”

Maybe God has asked you to do something you’ve never done before. You are in uncharted waters and you may have no point of reference and not one example in your life to model after. Yet, God chose you, and He wants you to have courageous faith. Here’s how you can…

Write it down.
Create a vision board, a drawing, or write down the task God gave you. The vision you pen will be what fuels you.
(see Habakkuk 2:2,3)

Feed your faith.
The more you hear God’s word  and act on it, the more your faith will grow like a giant. Record yourself speaking God’s word and listen to it over and over again. (see Romans 10:17)

Surround yourself with people who believe in you.
Everyone isn’t going to champion your cause and support your bold steps toward obeying God. Instead of allowing their discouragement to deter you, surround yourself with people who believe in you and who are full of faith.

Say what you believe.
The Apostle Paul said, “I believed, therefore, I spoke” (see 2 Corinthians 4:13). When it comes to having courageous faith, you will have to declare it openly, especially in the face of those who doubt you and your God.

Prayer: Father God, I thank You for Your work in my heart and in my life. You are wonderful! Thank You for nourishing my faith and helping me to believe in You and in myself. I often feel scared, but don’t let that stop me from obeying You. I love You. Thank You for giving me courageous faith. In Jesus name, Amen.

Great encourager


“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Today, I am now working on all areas of my life with the help of the Lord. He has strengthened me, encouraged me, and helped me to be consistent and follow through with my intentions. When I want to give up, I say, “Jesus, please help me and give me Your strength.” He comes quickly to the rescue without fail, and helps me to no longer compare myself to people or this world.

If your weight has been a constant struggle, know that the Lord accepts you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are more than a conqueror. Hear the Lord whispering to you, “You can do it, My child, you can do it.” That encouragement is eternal. He will take you from glory to glory.

Prayer: Father, I need You more than ever. I need this  encouragement that comes from Your throne. Please help me today find my way and strength in You to achieve this. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

You have some declaring to do!

“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. Psalms 118:17 (KJV)

When you could be dead, but God caused you to live, you have some declaring to do. When it’s a miracle that you are here, you have some declaring to do. When you wanted to backslide, but God kept you from going back, you have some declaring to do. There has been a supernatural work in you, and now there must be a supernatural work through you. Your declaring the works of the Lord will cause all around you to know and recognize the power of your God.

To declare in this verse means to inscribe, to recount, and to celebrate. Don’t hold back your declaration of what the Lord has done in your life. Write about it, talk about it, shout about it, and testify to the goodness of your great God! Don’t allow anyone to make you feel as though what He brought you through is too shameful to mention out loud. The only shame is in keeping quiet. If God brought you through it, He wants you to greatly rejoice about it and shout it on the mountain top! The only time we have God’s permission to be rooftop women is when we are boldly declaring what God has said and what He has done (see Matthew 10:27)!

We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony (see Revelation 12:11).

Prayer: Father God, thank You for Your mighty work in me, Your work through me and Your work around me. Help me not be afraid to open up and declare to others what You have done in my life. I pray my testimony touches someone and helps them come to know You for themselves. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
