A Call to Courage

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

God’s called us to a Promised Land – 
Some purpose, place or task.
And it is our obedience
For which He’ll simply ask.
 
He’s called us to that Promised Land,
And there are giants there –
But nothing that cannot be met
With faith, and hope, and prayer.
 
Our giants may seem onerous –
Too big, too much, too hard.
But when it’s God who’s calling us
There will be no holds barred.
 
For He’ll supply all that we need
To overcome our fears,
Our doubts, our insecurities…
His promises are clear -
 
He will be there to fight for us,
And vanquish any foe.
The question is, will we hold back
In fear? Or will we go?!
 
 
“do not be afraid... The Lord your God, who is going before you,
will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes,”
Deuteronomy 1:29b-30 NIV
