Live Dangerously ~ Expecting always for God to turn things around for His way not ours . . . Letting go, trusting Him in all things . . . Walking in obedience and full of faith . . . as an arrow flies may our spirits soar and hit the mark!
In living dangerously one must know the strength from within to do so is not freely given but earned. It is earned through choices made; earned through tests failed and passed, earned even though boulders thrown in our way we continue walking forward; earned by jumping off the cliffs – conquering fear.
Bravery, 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. Forever trusting 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 will you determine to live these next several hundred days that are set before you? 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 strength to rise above all things and walk in the authority that God has given you as a individual of worth, of bravery, capable of things through Christ who is your strength.
You will be amazed of His strength demonstrated through you in ways you’ve never thought possible. Live dangerously!
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).” AMP
