Face Discouragement – Be Bold!

Deuteronomy 31:8The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Discouraged? Afraid? Terrified? Broken? Shattered?
These feelings come from the spirit of fear and intimidation who wants you to remain silent and give up!
The antidote = confidence and trust in the Lord. Proclaim it!
Lord Jesus I am confident of this:
You began a good work in me and
You are faithful to complete it!
Phil 1:6
You have not given me a spirit of fear
But of power and of love and of a sound mind.2Tim 1:7
I refuse to be intimidated or discouraged Phil 1:28
Instead I will speak Your word boldly without fearPhil 1:14
For You go before me and are with me
You, the Lord Jesus Christ are able to keep me
And enable me to stand firm! 
Jude 1:24
To the only God our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord
Be glory, majesty, dominion and authority
Before all time and now and forever. Amen. 
Jude 1:25

    I will trust in You!
    You are my strength and comfort
    You are my steady hand
    You are my firm foundation; the rock on which I stand

    Your ways are always higher
    Your plans are always good
    There’s not a place where I’ll go, You’ve not already stood

    When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move
    When You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through
    When You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You
    I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!

    I will trust in You!
    I will trust in You!
    I will trust in You!

    I found You in the middle of my mess
    You had been there all along
    Open arms and open heart
    You called me in
    You didn’t hesitate at all

    And the lies I once believed
    they crumble
    With the weight of Your truth
    And the fear that gripped my heart
    is arrested
    So that I can see You

    When I only see in part
    I will prophesy Your promise
    I believe You, God
    ‘Cause You finish what You start
    I will trust You in the process
    I believe You, God

    You set a table
    in the middle of my war
    You knew the outcome of it all
    When what I faced looked like
    it would never end
    You said, watch the giants fall
