I double dog dare you

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19 (NASB)

By Bobby R. Henry, Sr.

Can you remember as a young child playing in the rain and splashing in mud puddles; playing hopscotch, catching fireflies and shooting skeeter-hawks (dragonflies) with homemade rubber guns? How about, being dared to climbing trees to their highest point, and taking the fruits from the neighbors trees without asking?

I’m willing to bet you a dime to a donut, you have participated more than once in a ‘double dog dare you stunt-and never once allowed the consequences to outweigh your level of courage, or as a child -stupidly.

Not once did anything register in your mind to how such an innocent challenge could perhaps result in serious injury.

In case you have selective amnesia let me reacquaint your understandings to what a ‘double dare-you’ is: After you have been given a challenge (no matter what kind) and you refused, the darer can then elevate the risks by double dog daring you; simply put it, means to up the method of persuasion when trying to get someone to do something.

As a child we were willing to go to almost any degree to show forth our integrity and go to almost any level to prove it. The significance of keeping one’s word is an issue of integrity!

Psalms 25:20-21: O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.

Righteousness and truthfulness are the two most imperative characteristics for a Christian to have. Respect-ability and truthfulness demonstrate what we trust, and how unswerving a walk we have with Jesus.

When a man/woman has an elevated degree of integrity they have a high level of real self-respect and genuine character.

“and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. 25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.” Ephesians 4:24-25 (NASB)

When we operate like Godly people clothed with honor and self-respect, we are doing as God would want us to do. When we meet anyone they should be able to see God in our lifestyle. Leaving our sins behind daily and picking up Godly habits should be our focus.

We should act on God’s impulses not some dare created to test us.

And Jesus answered and said to him, “It is said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.’” Luke 4:12 (NASB)

My dare to you is hold God accountable to His Word and what He said that He would do for you.

Let your fear subside and approach Your Heavenly Father and fervently ask Him for what you need-I double dog dare you.

“Dear God I dare not, not to trust and depend on You. For without you I am nothing, but with you I can do all things. Amen”

GOD’S ONLY DARE IS TO TRUST HIM!
