A Courageous Spirit: Live Big

Our level of courage will determine whether or not we “live big.”  Most people say they want to courageously walk through new doors of opportunity and embrace change, but few will ever make the decision to do so.  Change is frightening.  Safety calls to us and tries to keep us from the bigger and deeper life God has prepared for those who love Him.  God rewards our faith-filled lives; a desire for safety tries to stand in the way of our faith.

God has big plans for us; those dreams fill our hearts and thoughts.  It’s all God-breathed and it comes with our Hope–Jesus.  Our faith must be confidently placed in God’s love and character.  We have to apply our faith in courageous ways in order to live out these big plans from God.  Don’t allow fear or the desire for safety to stand in your way.  When you know God is leading you to step out to embrace the new; use your faith and “live big” in Christ.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.  “They are plans for good and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.”  Jeremiah 29:11  “And it is impossible to please God without faith.  Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.”  Hebrews 11:6
