Be Audacious

I was listening to Steven Furtick’s message “Make Us Audacious” from the One Prayer series this morning and wanted to share this with you. In 1 Samuel 14:6 Jonathan is sharing with his armor-bearer prior to going on a mission to attack the Philistines and he tells him “Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, where by many or by few.” (NIV) He encouraged his armor-bearer even though it was a suicide mission, there were only two swords left in Israel and Jonathan and Saul were the only two left with one.

“I despaired at the thought that my life might slip by without seeing God show himself mightily on our behalf.” Jim Cymbala, Pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle and author.

Be encouraged and have the audacity to move on God’s behalf and He will move on yours. Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. When you step out in faith and do what He has called you to according to His purpose He will make you more than a conqueror, he will make you the head and not the tail, you will be above and never beneath, He will give you the strength and wisdom to pull off the miraculous. Just be prepared to step on His behalf and don’t let anything hold you back. Nothing can stop God.
