Dare to Believe

Dare to Believe

Josh Wilson has a song on the radio entitled, “Dare to Believe”. Here’s the lyrics:

Do you wonder why you have to feel the things that hurt you
If there’s a God who loves you, where is He now
Maybe there are things you can’t see
And all those things are happening to bring a better ending
Someday somehow you’ll see, you’ll see
Would you dare, would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming
So hold on you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning
My friend, you know how this all ends, you know where you’re going
You just don’t know how you’ll get there, so say a prayer
And hold on cause there’s good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot, it might take a little time
But you’ll see the bigger picture
Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory
Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory
Would you dare, would you dare to believe
That you still got a reason to sing
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming
Come on you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the hurt before the healing
Oh the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

This song basis is Romans 8:18 and man it is full of meaning. Here’s some thoughts…

We must believe. And our belief must propel us to action. It’s not just enough to believe. We must act on that belief.

Believe that your current situation is only temporary. Believe that better days are ahead. Believe that God is in control and will work things out. Believe that there still is a reason to sing. And then sing!!! Praise him through it all.

Those who become depressed have lost sight of where they are going. Turn your attention to the perfector of your faith and focus on your eternal destination.

Because when you step through those heavenly gates and you see Jesus face to face, the worries you are dealing with today are all faded away.

Dare to believe. Dare to live reminding yourself of who you were before Jesus and who he has fashioned you to be now. Rejoice!!!

God sends messengers along your path to confirm words He has spoken to you and this happened to me yesterday. Here’s the email I received from someone in my church.

“Tell the man of God, leader of this house that I knew him before he ever was and just as it was with Moses, so shall it be with you. You have been chosen for this time, this place and this hour to lead people out of spiritual bondage….just as Moses led the people out of physical bondage. You will be sent laborers to help, but there will be Judases also along the way. There will be trials and tribulations, but worry not for the Lord will be with you to guide and protect you. Keep your eyes on Him and not man. Then when your journey on earth is over you will hear these words WELL DONE MY FAITHFUL SERVANT.”

Little did this man know but when I was in the military God gave me this verse to draw strength from continually.

““I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.””
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I had to choose to believe the Word of God and stand upon it.

You do the same, “Dare to Believe” because what God has in store for you tomorrow hinges on your belief in His plan for you. Don’t be distracted or dismayed!!!

Joy is coming!!!!
