Being Brave Without Even Realizing
WAIT and hope for and expect the Lord;
be BRAVE and of GOOD COURAGE
and let your heart be stout and enduring.
Yes, WAIT for and hope for and expect the Lord.
Psalm 27:14 AMP
How to be brave?
The answer is: Wait!
How to be BRAVE and of good courage?
It’s wrapped up in the ‘WAIT and HOPE FOR and EXPECT THE LORD’
This is not a passive or discouraged wait;
It’s a confident expectation of good;
It’s a knowing that He is faithful and a promise-keeper;
It’s being settled and assured.
It’s delighting in the Lord.
Meditating on His Word.
It’s drawing near to Him,
your heart RESPONDING to His,
RECEIVING His love.
It’s looking to Him.
It’s SEEING a big Jesus.
That’s when your heart burns,
and you step out in trust;
Knowing that all things are possible with the Lord.
You are being brave without even realizing it.
Focus on the WAIT – it’s mentioned twice!
The BRAVE is in the WAIT.
