Never let your fear dictate your future.
During a choice of fear or faith, most of us will let fear win. Your fear will ALWAYS talk you out of taking that first step of faith.
Fear can trick you into thinking it means safety and security therefore never allowing good change.
When fear dictates you, it tells you “No, you can’t.” but when faith directs you, it tells you “ALL things are possible with God.”
Fear will hold you anchored never allowing you to move forward into your divine destiny.
Faith will propel you into the destiny God set aside for you before the beginning of time.
Fear will hold you captive it a mundane, no frills, and ordinary life.
Faith will propel you into the extraordinary, exciting, beyond fulfilling, and HUMUNGOUS life God has waiting for you.
You only have one life on this earth. Choose the one that will propel you into utter happiness, joy, peace, and knowledge that you lived your very best life in the time you had on this earth.
Stepping out into faith means you lived the life that God intended for you to live.
With just one life to live, I want to make sure I lived up to my full purpose/potential.
We pray for specific things asking God to bring it to pass.
We have an idea of just how we expect God to answer our prayers.
We put God in our box, we contain Him, and we place limits on Him.
We tell Him exactly how to do things because that is how it will perfectly fit into our lives.
But one thing we have to remember. God is not a man! God does not work on our timeline or schedule.
God does not work inside our perfect box. God does bigger, grander, and humongous things.
God will not answer your prayer the way you are expecting Him to.
God will bust your box wide open. He will destroy any preconceived idea of how He does things.
However, He does answer your prayers; it will make you stand back in awe of Him. His answered prayers will blow your mind.
Have you ever heard of the phrase “be careful what you pray for”?
God will answer your prayer, but when He does He will push you out of your comfort zone. He will bring a test to prepare you for the exact thing you prayed for.
Be prepared to be moved into a place of discomfort as God tests, builds, refines, prunes, and brings pressure to your life.
He does all of these things out of His love for us. He cannot bring answered prayers without preparing us.
Doing so would destroy us. We cannot receive our answered prayers without first being prepared.
Fear can hold us captive never letting us move forward into God’s promises
Fear can come from the self-doubt you might have that God has so many blessings to shower into your life.
Maybe fear sets in when you think about how different your life will look when you give full control to God.
Maybe it is fear coming from believing that God will take everything you love and make you remove it from your life.
Perhaps fear sets in when your friends start telling you that the next step you are going to take in faith for God is too crazy and too scary.
Perhaps it is it something entirely different. Maybe it is fear of the unknown.
Can you imagine if someone like Dr. King Jr. had let fear control his destiny?
You know he had to be fearful at times. So many people hated him for the words he was speaking and the actions he was taking.
Some of those people wanted to stop him at ANY costs. That had to be so very fearful at times. I am talking about paralyzing fear! I can’t even imagine that kind of fear gripping me. I don’t know how I would handle it.
I am so glad he did not stop pursuing his divine destiny. I am pleased he pushed through the fear that came to try to stop him.
Today, we celebrate his courage, his determination, his accomplishments, and his love for others.
Here is a prayer to pray today. God, make me as FEARLESS as you did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
No matter how far you have strayed away from Him, He will always love you.
No matter how many times you have denied who He truly is, He still loves you.
No matter how many times He has heard you say “God, won’t do that for me,” He still loves you.
No matter how many times you have walked away from Him, He will always love you.
No matter how many times you fail and come short of His glory, He will always pick you up and love you.
We all seek a true, and unconditional love. Our Father in heaven gives that love freely. Seek Him and His unfailing love.
To know the true love of a compassionate Father, will change your life forever.
Know that you are the apple of His eye.
What is the ultimate and most priceless gift you can bestow onto your children?
The world tells us that this kind of priceless gift would be vast riches or a very successful business empire.
That priceless gift IS worship. Worship is pleasing to God. How incredible it is to please our almighty God with our worship.
Our worship destroys all thoughts of hopelessness, depression, anxiety, unworthiness, sadness, heaviness, and self-pity.
How wonderful to know that your children would not be affected by the pain of these feelings?
How wonderful to know that your children can access the throne room of God with their worship.
How priceless to know your children are honed into God’s will for their life via their worship?
No monetary value can be placed on that kind of Godly access. There is no amount of riches that can be paid for this type of access.
Think BIG! Dream BIG. Don’t dream small! Don’t settle for a humdrum life.
God didn’t create you to settle. Our Savior gave His life for you to have a victorious, enormous, fulfilling, and happy life.
God created you to do immense things for His glory.
God does not do mundane, ordinary, boring, or small things. He does BIG, HUGE, ENORMOUS, and COLOSSAL things!
Our God parts the seas. Our God feeds his people with manna that appears from the morning dew. Our God makes water come from broken rocks. Our God stops time to give His people time to win the battle. Our God protects His children in the fire pit.
Live your best life NOW! Each of us only has one life to live. Live it to the fullest by pursuing your divine destiny.
Isn’t that what we all are searching for? To live the best life we can live?
Unleash our limitless God in your life. Watch Him turn your life from ordinary to phenomenal!
