standeth God within the shadow,

keeping watch above his own.”

John 10:27, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”

 

(2) Dare to risk

 

(3) Digest wise counsel

Proverbs 11:14, “Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.”(NKJV)

 

Proverbs 19:20, “Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life.”

 

(4) Defer control

Ephesians 4:2, “Be always humble, gentle, and patient.”

Romans 12:12, “Be patient in your troubles.”

James 5:8, “You also must be patient. Keep your hopes high, for the day of the Lord’s coming is near.”

 

(5) Discover Confidence

Final Thought: When my plans fail, God still prevails; therefore I can be patiently bold.
