Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
New Beginnings! Today is July 1st which means we are officially celebrating 1 year and 1 month of this podcast. That is 284 episodes and close to 260 thousand prayers. God is good.
I love new months because it symbolizes new chapters, new seasons, new beginnings.
I love that today is a Thursday because it allows us to “start fresh” in the middle of a week. Almost contradicting. Most people wait for Monday to get on track with their plans, but I dare you to start today.
This is essentially what my book is about. For those of you who have read it already, you will know what I mean.
The first step we need to take is taking on the true identity of being a Child of God. When you do that, when you take on that identity, it will be nearly impossible for you to not achieve all that you hope and wish for because you know that all things are possible through Christ who strengthens you.
Take today’s verse, for example. Be strong and courageous. Do not fear. If fear is what keeps you from following your dreams, starting the gym, saying no to events or outings to steward your time and treasure better, then you will always be paralyzed.
Break free today. Start fresh today. Lean on God. Walk-in confidence He gives you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
Jesus, thank you so much for a new day, a new month, new beginnings. Today we pray to take a leap of faith and to start going after the things you have called us to. We ask for strength in starting to work out, starting to chase our dreams, reaching out to that family member, talking to that co-worker, saying yes to the things you have for us. Let us not be paralyzed in fear but let us walk in the confidence of the Spirit. We love you with everything in us, AMEN!
