What is Jesus saying to me that requires supernatural courage?

There were two who walked on water. Jesus wasn’t the only one. Peter had supernatural courage. Jesus said one word. It was “come”. Peter did.

What is Jesus saying to me that requires supernatural courage? It could be just one word.

May I move at at His word. May I have supernatural courage. May I live in the new plan.

Will I keep my eye on the goal?

February 21, 2013 Leave a comment

We need to keep our eyes on the goal. We want all that God has for us. When we want something else He clears our eyes and blurred vision out. We are on the right track. We have taken the right road. We must stay on it.

Now I know that I don’t have it all together. I haven’t made it. With His help, I am on my way though. Together we are well on our way. He has reached out for me. He has reached out for you. Together we are experts.

We are off and running. We can reach the goal. It is a wonderful prize.

May we have supernatural courage.

Do you want more courage?

February 11, 2013 Leave a comment

We all need more courage. We should pray to be bolder.

What does it take for more courage in our lives? Faith!

We must believe our Father has great things in mind for us.

“A man of courage is also full of faith.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero.

All who wander are not lost. Israel knew how to get to the promised land. They didn’t have the courage to go.

Wandering around is not a sign you are lost. In your heart, you probably know where God wants you to go. We need to be bold. He gives us faith and courage.

Let’s head on up to the promised land. God has given it to us. Be brave. God is with us.

All who wander are not lost. Israel knew how to get to the promised land. They didn’t have the courage to go.

“Stand in line and take your turn.” ~~Jesus

Jesus had been pretty busy. He took a trip to a new area thinking he could get away for a while. He entered a house there where he didn’t think he would be found, but he couldn’t escape notice.

He was barely inside when a woman who had a disturbed daughter heard where he was. She came and knelt at his feet, begging for help. The woman was Greek, Syro-Phoenician by birth. She wasn’t a part of the Jewish faith so not a member of the favored religious groups.

She asked Jesus to cure her daughter. While not a part of the in crowd, she believed in Jesus completely.

So imagine her surprise at Jesus answer. “Stand in line” He says. Really?

He says a few more things intended, on the surface, to discourage her.

She said, “Of course, Master. But don’t dogs under the table get scraps dropped by the children?”

This impressed Jesus. He told her to go home and that her daughter was healed.

Imagine impressing Jesus. What is the key? Don’t get discouraged. Keep asking. Believe that He really wants to help. Really believe that. Know that your turn is coming.

“Stand in line and take your turn.” ~~Jesus (Mark 7:27 The Message)

Are we bold enough?

The apostles had already received the power of the Holy Spirit after Jesus was raised from the dead and ascended to Heaven to rule with His Father. The were arrested when a crippled man was healed. They were released from jail and warned not to talk about Jesus. The were bold beyond believe already.

Yet, they prayed for more boldness and fearless courage. And God gave it to them.

We may think we have enough. We don’t. May God give us more. May God give it to us now.

“And now they’re at it again! Take care of their threats and give your servants fearless confidence in preaching your Message, as you stretch out your hand to us in healings and miracles and wonders done in the name of your holy servant Jesus.” (Acts 4:29 MSG)

“Daughter, you took a risk of faith, and now you’re healed and whole.” ~~Jesus

With faith comes a risk. What if, we think. What if God doesn’t answer.What if we look silly. We can have a whole bunch of “What ifs” rattling through our thoughts.

We need extraordinary courage to believe God will intercede.  God is faithful. When we step out in faith, take a risk, show extraordinary courage, He responds. God is God, good and great. What an amazing God we serve. All we need to do is believe Him. He will heal us and make us whole.

“Daughter, you took a risk of faith, and now you’re healed and whole.” ~~Jesus
