To the Pioneer
READ: Joshua 1:1-9 This message is for everybody.
Everyone is called to leadership, no matter if you follow after someone or you are a number two or three in any type of position. Our intrinsic call is to be like Christ; to be bold, brave, and courageous.
We are to be examples for others and show them the way. The way out of pain, despair, grief, heartache, depression, struggle, facts, lies, temporary satisfactions, normalcy etc...whatever the current state that doesn't allow a people or person to maximize who they really are, we are to help them move out of that stagnant place and move into another.
Joshua 1:6 Be strong and courageous, for you shall give these people the inheritance of the land that I swore to their fathers I would give them.
I wanted to encourage you today, especially those who have a burden of deliverance for certain people; BE BOLD and VERY COURAGEOUS! Not just in a spiritual context, but to the Pioneer, the Trailblazer, the FIRST to go a direction, to do it a certain way that has never been done before......DO IT! Sometimes do it feeling the fear.
That's the thing about feelings they don't always indicate the truth. No matter what you feel you must do what you know! Fear will try to paralyze us from doing what we know we must do, but the fear is a lie. So despite all you see, hear, feel... do what you know is true and write that book, publish the article, do that photo-shoot, brand that idea, go back to school, apply for that job and don't look back! Because your next steps aren't completely about you, they're about the people that are waiting for you on the other side. People who need what you have, people who have been stuck in a pattern that has been sucking them dry. If you don't go, who will? No one else has been equipped, experienced and made to this job but you. Lead them out and Lead them into!
See you later Lions!
Remember Be Brave. ROAR!🦁🦁🦁
