Morning from all of the Faith Filled Friends! We hope you are doing really well and pumped for Jesus, I know I am. This morning I really just want to encourage everyone in taking up courage and to start being brave. We need to live lives that show we are unashamed of Jesus. Let’s dive straight in shall we.
Today I will be discussing the upbeat and joyous song, “Long Live” by none other than ‘for King & Country’. I really love what they do and this song has been standing out in my heart and I felt like I needed to break from the series to discuss this with you.
Long Live- for King & Country
‘… Long live the young at heart… You know who you are… With your spirit burning… Take a risk and take a chance…’ This song encourages us to love bold faith filled lives, to the MAX! Young children are known for their incredible faith, and if you could maintain that faith you would move mountains for sure. You need to talk risks in life, whether it could cost you everything (God’s Not Dead 2) or just something small that could just die out with no effect (The Faith Filled Friends, but we are so grateful for all the support from you and God). Starting up this website just before year 12 final exams is very risky, but I felt God say to me, “Gad this is how you can change the world, by being who I made you to be.” This was on my heart since I first started the song devotions with Clarkie, but to be me would mean using what God has given me, so in all sorts of ways. The idea of a website soon grew and became a reality. We are so grateful now for what we have been able to do as four faith filled friends.
Phillipeans 4:13- I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me.
We need to start standing up for what we believe in! I am not ashamed to proclaim that Jesus died for me, that I am saved through Him and His great love. We need to get our ‘… Spirit burning…’ and start shining God’s love to the lost and the broken. It cuts me to the core that people suffer depression and some commit suicide because they can’t fill that hole in their heart. It hurts because we know a love that washes us clean and is poured to overflow, and the grace that never fails and looks past every mistake. We need to start ‘… Walking hand in hand… Step by step’ with God. What would Jesus do, is a great question that we should base our actions off.
Don’t be afraid to dream, don’t worry about what people will think, with two left feet just keep on dancing because you have been saved! We are free and we should run wild in God’s love and in His perfect plan. If we set our eyes on Jesus daily and stand up and go, living out His plans and doing His will. Live Free everyone, not letting other people knock you down and not letting them break your faith. Jesus loves you so much, He called you His sons and His daughters. We don’t have to live our lives trying to impress Him or try give Him a well lived life, Jesus died for us so we could live free and shine His love. We don’t need to live our lives to give back to Jesus, He gave us our lives but we don’t need to prove that we can make a difference or live well. He knows the plans he has for you, you need to know that not every Christian needs to be a pastor or a missionary, but God calls different people to different jobs, so long live all Christians, living strong and lifting up the name of Jesus.
Don’t worry about what people are thinking or saying about you, if you can’t dance still dance for Jesus with your two left feet. Pray daily asking God for His love to permeate through you into your friends and the lost. We need to live free and look like love because we are free and we are loved. Take a risk in what you do today, pray for wisdom and ask God to be the focus of the risk. Maybe you need to talk to your friend about God or maybe you need to start reading you Bible at work in spare time. Let’s get hungry for God, let’s get Faith Filled and stand strong in Jesus together. Jesus loved me why should I not love others?
Jesus please give me you grace and your love. Lord, I ask you for your heavenly wisdom to pour into me, you say those who lack wisdom should ask God and He will give it unto you, and I lack your wisdom God. Please help me to live focused on you and your love. Jesus let your love flow from me to my family and my friends. Please bless everything I do today and let lives be changed and given to you. You are the only one, you are my number one! Jesus, you are what I live for, so please give me grace and boldness! I am unashamed. Thank you Jesus.
God Bless you everyone. Live because of Jesus, living wholeheartedly. Take a risk and live like you’re young and free. God Bless all of you, from…
