[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…yes, I hear you: the problems ahead of you are great — but the God ahead of you is Greater.

“Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because *God, your God, is striding ahead of you.* He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; He won’t leave you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 MSG

There’s the secret to being brave: Be awed by the God ahead of you & the fears will fall behind you.
