You Make Me Brave

“Be strong and courageous” appears more than a few times in the Bible. Sometimes though, it’s hard to be courageous on our own and we need help to be brave. 

Psalm 138:3 says, ” In the day when I cried out, You answered me and made me bold with strength in my soul.” (NKJV)

God knows us. He sees us and He hears us. When we talk to Him, we can be assured that He is paying attention. At Alabaster Kids, our students have been working on a dance to the song You Make Me Brave, by Bethel. The lyrics unfold in expressing God being for us and not against us.

In Matthew 14, Peter stepped out of a boat, walked on water and made his way to Jesus who also was on the water. Peter took his eyes off Jesus and set his gaze on the storm, fear gripped him and he began to sink! Peter cried out to Jesus. The scripture says “Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.” Immediately. He didn’t leave it until the last moment where Peter was certain he would die. Jesus helped him immediately when Peter cried out. It’s a choice, really.

You can stay where you are and let the fear win, or you can step out in boldness and go somewhere you may have never been before. If it’s too hard to muster the courage on your own, all you have to do is call out to Jesus and ask Him to help you. He’s there. He’s listening. He sees you and He wants to make you brave.

Alabaster Theatre will be performing You Make Me Brave at the Light of the World Festival on Sunday the 30th at Mabel Park State High School.

No fear can hinder now the promises you made
