The last “D” in the Quitters’ Club series is “Dare”.

Now when you hear this word you may think of the childhood game of Truth or Dare where someone asks you a question and instead of telling them the truth, you would choose a dare.

We may also associate the word “dare” with negative things such are daring someone to do something dangerous.

But the “dare” that I am referring to is one that encourages us; the word that gets us out of our comfort zone and finds a way to move positively toward something bigger and better.  The “dare” that I am talking about is taking a step toward being or doing what God wants you to do.  It’s having that dream in your heart and daring to step out and make it happen.

God dares us to leave our life of sin and brokenness, addiction and defeat, discouragement and tears and step into a life of freedom with Him.  He’s daring us to trust Him to take us to the next level.  He’s daring us to let go of the past and take a leap into the future.  He’s daring us to leave behind the hurt and the sin of the past and cling to Him to step into a new life where He leads the way.

Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill have a 30-day devotional called Dare To Be.  Some of the chapters include:

Dare to be Free.
Dare to be Trusting.
Dare to be Patient.
Dare to be Still.
Dare to be Beautiful.
Dare to be Changed.
Dare to be Unmasked.
Dare to be Loved.
Dare to be A Servant.
Dare to be His.
Dare to be A Finisher.

Friends, dare to let it go.  Whatever IT is that is keeping you from living this beautiful life in Jesus, let it go.  Let Him lead the way.  Let Him lead your life.  Quit the struggle and let God take control.  I Dare You.
