Don’t Be Weak!

“We were made to be courageous We were made to lead the way We could be the generation That finally breaks the chains We were made to be courageous We were made to be courageous We were warriors on the front lines Standing, unafraid But now we’re watchers on the sidelines While our families slip away Where are you, men of courage? You were made for so much more Let the pounding of our hearts cry We will serve the Lord We were made to be courageous And we’re taking back the fight We were made to be courageous And it starts with us tonight The only way we’ll ever stand Is on our knees with lifted hands Make us courageous Lord, make us courageous This is our resolution Our answer to the call We will love our wives and children We refuse to let them fall We will reignite the passion That we buried deep inside May the watchers become warriors. Let the men of God arise We were made to be courageous And we’re taking back the fight We were made to be courageous And it starts with us tonight The only way we’ll ever stand Is on our knees with lifted hands Make us courageous Lord, make us courageous Seek justice Love mercy Walk humbly with your God In the war of the mind I will make my stand In the battle of the heart And the battle of the hand In the war of the mind I will make my stand In the battle of the heart And the battle of the hand We were made to be courageous And we’re taking back the fight We were made to be courageous And it starts with us tonight The only way we’ll ever stand Is on our knees with lifted hands Make us courageous Lord, make us courageous We were made to be courageous Lord, make us courageous”

As this song resonates in my head after listening to it time and time again since i recently downloaded it, it speaks to me in ways i never imagined. Lately i’ve had multiple talks with a close friend who has struggled with a reoccuring phrase in his head…”Don’t be weak”. He recently started to work with many of our higher ranking individuals in a business/office like setting. In a realm where free speech to such individuals is frowned upon, and at times punishable by legal action based on WHAT you say, its difficult when prompted by the Spirit to minister to them. It’s times like these that you must trust in God and make the move. In his words, don’t be weak. Courage as many have you have heard is not necessarily the absence of fear, but the ability to move forward in spite of it. Trusting in God allows us to move past our fears, putting faith in what we know based on the Word of God, rather than in our own emotions. He put his caution aside and spoke to both of our highest ranking individuals about the Lord Jesus Christ. Much to his amazement it went really well. Both are fellow believers, interested in sitting in on his bible study…a mere pion compared to them and they are looking to him spiritual support. Courage has served him well. We should all draw our courage from the Lord in such ways. Romans 8:15 MSG say “This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” “We were made to be courageous, And we’re taking back the fight, We were made to be courageous, And it starts with us tonight.” God is calling each of us to be courageous, chasing after the lost with a heart of compassion and fervor. I agree, and believe that this generation can make a change, can help build the kingdom of God like no other generation. But the call has been put on us to take the step. Risk it. Don’t feel like you can? Ask Jesus for the strength, direction, and passionate burden. “The only way we’ll ever stand, Is on our knees with lifted hands, Lord, make us courageous. Seek justice, Love mercy, Walk humbly with your God.

Let the men of God arise”
