Our brave journey continues whether we are ready or not. Many times it’s not the way we imagined it would unfold or in the timing we feel our plan should be happening, but the bottom line is it’s always God’s way, not ours. Brave faith is a reliance on God for His way and timing to be revealed. It is knowing that even in the waiting, the big “noes” or the sudden change in direction, that God’s got this. He is holding us close and desires for our heart to beat in rhythm and harmony with His.
Brave faith is releasing everything to God. It is turning our fear to God and putting on the armor of “do not be afraid for I am your God”. There is not one thread of our being that is really ours. It belongs to God. Fear may block our vision, our path and our dreams, but God sees the whole tapestry of our lives, which He uniquely crafted for us. That is all we need.
The journey to brave faith requires knowing God and His truths. It is immersing ourselves in His Word and making it part of the fabric of our being. It is learning scripture and storing it in our hearts.

I am praying the following verses bless, encourage and sustain all of us.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 NLT
Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the Lord! Psalm 27:14
Everyone helps his neighbor
and says to his brother, “Be strong!” Isaiah 41:6
So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:16 NLT
What verses do you turn to when you are seeking confidence in God and need to walk forward bravely?
Remember God’s got this and He is in every brave step, every intimate detail throughout the fabric of our lives.
Hold on and be brave today!

There are so many beautiful, encouraging promises in scripture, aren’t there, Mary? I almost used that as my theme for #write31days! The verses you chose are perfect! Isaiah and the Psalms are two of my favorite places to go to find His sweet assurances. I hope working through this series is blessing you, dear one, as it is me!
This series has been one of God teaching me each day. He has something He is trying to tell me and is using this journey as my lesson. It is amazing to be able to write for God and in the process learn so much about yourself. I am honored that these words are blessing you as well. Thank you for encouraging me.
“I believe I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” AND another fave: “Weeping may come for the night but joy comes with the morning (Psalm 30:5).” It’s amazing to me how many times throughout scripture we read the words “Do not b afraid.”
I love both of those verses. We really can’t ever do wrong with turning to God’s word for guidance and truth. Hoping your Sunday was restorative.
“Brave faith is a reliance on God for His way and timing to be revealed. ” Oh yes! This has definitely been true in my experience. We grow our faith in life’s dark places. We develop trust when we must depend on God alone. Isaiah 10:41 is a ‘go to’ verse for me, as is Psalm 27:1 and verses 13 – 14. Thanks for sharing these building thoughts and beautiful verses with us, Mary. Bless you, friend. 🙂 x
I am blessed you found these verses to be ones that speak to you as well. God’s word is such a beautiful treasure that I know I cannot live without. Praying your weekend was fruitful and restorative.
Isaiah 41:10 has been my “go to” verse lately. Though things have been really rough, I take heart in knowing God has me by his righteous and victorious right hand. Thanks for this much needed reminder this am!
God’s word never fails to bless us when we let it soak in and take up residence. I was praying for you this weekend and hope that you feel a bit of peace in the challenges you are facing. I missed not getting to meet you. Blessings friend!
