When everything says go, don't be afraid. Follow Jesus.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” ~ Joshua 1:9, AMP

“I am holding you by your right hand—I, the Lord your God—and I say to you, Don’t be afraid; I am here to help you.” ~ Isaiah 41:13, TLB

What if Everything Says Go?

Lord, You are my Shepherd. I shall not want. You lead me in paths of righteousness. You lead me in the ways I should go to fulfill Your purposes. I said yes to You, Lord. Now is the time. Everything says go … except my feet.

My feet are stuck in fear.

My feet are stuck in what-if.

My feet are over-thinking and under-trusting.

Forgive me, Lord. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be a blessing to You. May my obedience be a sweet aroma to You.

You tell me to not be afraid, that You will go before me. I need only to follow You. What a beautiful promise!

Make me brave, Lord, when everything says go.

I can see it in my mind’s eye — the image of You walking before me casting light into the darkness, thwarting the plans of the enemy.

I can see Your mighty hand stretching back toward me, grasping mine, and strengthening my step when the going gets rough.

Everything says go. Now is the appointed time. Everything but my feet.

Make me brave, Lord.

Bring my thoughts captive to You. Help me cast my imagination aside and focus only on You — on Your faithfulness, on Your steadfast love. You are who You say You are. You do what You say You will do.

Everything says go, it's time to step out in faith

I need not be afraid of the impossible. I need only to trust You and take You at Your Word.

Your Word is powerful, it is sharper than a two-edged sword separating soul and spirit, separating my desires and lining them up with Yours.

I choose You, Lord.

You are the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. You are mighty in power and tender in love that sustains me.

Now is The Time

Everything says go — now is the time to step out in faith, to not question the timing, to not focus on inadequacies. You are my sufficiency — anything I lack You will provide. Your timing is always perfect.

May my obedient heart be received by You as a sacrifice of trust, O God. Thank You for confirming my steps. Thank You for leading the way.

In Jesus’s Name I pray,

Amen — let it be so
