It's Friday!! The start of the weekend for some, a time to reflect on the week to others, or just another day of the week for many.
Regardless of what you think of it, we've reached another day that God has made so let us all rejoice and be glad in it!
Fear, fear is a crippling device that is not something we were born with, nor something we are suppose to have. Fear is a tool the enemy uses to keep us from obtaining all that God has for us. Some would say "well the Bible says we are to fear the Lord, so what now?" God is the only one we are to fear, and it's not a fear like we use as an everyday excuse, it's more of a respect and not wanting to disappoint your Father and face the consequences of disobedience.
Fear of man and of the unknown is something God didn't give to us. He says in his word "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. " (2 Timothy 1:7) KJV. We have been given POWER, we have been given LOVE, and we have been given a SOUND MIND, what we were not given was fear. We are to use all of those gifts to achieve our greatness.
Fear can keep you from that great paying job that God is trying to bless you with. Fear can keep you from speaking a life changing word to God's people. Fear can keep you from opening that business you so desire. If we continue to walk in fear, we will never be able to obtain the fullness of what's in store for our life.
Think about it, by playing it safe, in other words "fear", you will never truly know how great you are. This applies to me as well. Do yall think that I wasn't afraid of starting a blog, or writing and publishing my first book? I most certainly was and it was because I didn't know how it would be received or if it would be a help to people, or if I should even be doing it in the first place. God had to remind me that I should not be afraid of anything, especially something that he has given me to do. This in part is my ministry and if I hadn't began, it wouldn't reach who it needs to reach. This isn't about me, but about who can be helped through my words.
Once you look past yourself and how something may benefit you, you will see how it can benefit others. What if you are too afraid to open up your business, that's someone's job that wasn't created because you walked in fear instead of FAITH.
How many people can be blessed by what you have to offer, if you would just STEP OUT ON FAITH and let go of the fear?
If God gave it to you, he will most certainly bless your works and your faithfulness, HE HAS ALREADY PAVED THE WAY, YOU JUST HAVE TO LET FEAR GO AND WALK OUT IN TOTAL FAITH!
You may be motivated to do something, but when you get that FEARLESS MOTIVATION, you CANNOT and WILL NOT be stopped!!
Don't let fear of the unknown keep you from fulfilling your God given destiny. You were born to be greater, so BE GREATER and tap into your FEARLESS MOTIVATION.
Be strong and be courageous in everything you do!!!
