Use your words!
When my boys were young, I quickly learned that humans develop opinions early in life. We had to each them to use their words instead of grunting and whining!
The same thing happens in your faith life. You will come to a place when your faith wants to start leaning in a certain direction and reach certain things. But as you mature, God will require you to use your words. Not just any words, but the right kind of words.
Do you know anyone you think is fearless? You don’t know when someone is fearless until they start talking (especially when they’re in a tight spot).
You do not have fearless faith until you start using some fearless words! Some people’s faith never come out of their mind or their journal sitting on a shelf. But your faith doesn’t become fearless until you start talking.
Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.” 10-11 Then Joshua gave orders to the people’s leaders: “Go through the camp and give this order to the people: ‘Pack your bags. In three days you will cross this Jordan River to enter and take the land God, your God, is giving you to possess.’”Joshua 1:9-11 MSG
