Are you afraid of something? Failure? Poverty? Making a bad decision? Disappointing someone you love? Many of us have fears if we are honest. We struggle with faith, believing that God will fulfill His promises. We worry because it is second nature to us, and we often allow fear to paralyze us rather than motivate us to believe God for the miraculous.
This post stems from my own personal fears. God is doing and has been doing something in my life for some time. I must be honest and say I’m afraid of failure. It would be a giant leap of faith, and the fears are numerous. I’m afraid I may get ahead of God and force something that may not be in His timing.
I know I am not the only one who is facing fears. What am I doing now and what would I recommend to you? Pray through the fear! Test God’s hand! Praise through the fear! It aligns your perspective. Push through until you see the answer! It may happen differently than you expected, but you will gain a spiritual victory on the other side of this.
Remember, my friend, that God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Unhealthy fear is always a tool of the devil to keep you living your mediocre, mundane life. God is calling you to an adventure of obedience. Are you willing to follow Him all the way?
