Week 30 - #Prepare “Dare”

“How Dare You?"

Philippians 1:14 - "Most of the brothers in the Lord have gained confidence from my imprisonment and dare even more to speak the message fearlessly.”

Isaiah 54:2 - “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes."

Why is it that we are typically OK with “daring" to enlarge our own territories when it comes to the physical, and mental aspects, but rarely with our spiritual growth?

We often "dare" to climb the highest mountain, swim in the biggest ocean, and run the longest race but, rarely "dare" to seek a greater walk with God.

Are we more willing and apt to dare to achieve personal goals, because they are more tangible? Something visible that can be held or displayed on a shelf?

When was the last time you prepared to be transformed by daring to lean your ladder against God's wall?

DADs, when we dare to discover God's deep love for us His plan for us becomes clearer. When we truly dare to turn to Him we become more daring to“enlarge the place of our tents, and let the curtains of our habitations be stretched out;”Isaiah 54:2.

When we prepare to dare (not jumping out of airplanes or taking unhealthy risks), but daring to run with God, then only then, will He be able to fully use us for His glory.

DADs, remember some take dares for flair but let’s take dares to share and care. Let’s prepare to dare today by sharing His love and caring for His people.

Now that a real "truth and dare!"

To God be the glory!

DADs “get in the game”…

Today is game day…and so is every day…

God gives you! So…C’mon Men Suit Up!

**Today we prepare to “Share.” Next week we will consider how critical it is to prepare to “dare."

Note: *For this new year of 2021, the combination of my age (understanding my own fragile mortality), this current and ongoing global pandemic, and most recently the personal loss I’ve experienced of one of my students, has amplified the need to land on one word...#Prepare.

In this "pursuit to prepare" I am determined to dedicate the 52 weeks of 2021 blogging every Week about one aspect of preparation God lays on my heart.

As mentioned in week 1, the word “prepare” means “to establish, fix, or apply.” It conveys the idea of deliberate effort over a prolonged period of time.
