I want to stall
I want to stop
I want to go back to my comfort zone
I want to sit in the background and cheer other people on
I want to be given the easier path to the BIG vision (I mean, I know a little hard is required)
But I have learned that I can not want all those things and the will of God too. I have to choose what I want most. The moment I say, “Yes” to any of the items above, I am saying, “No” to the plan of God for this season of my life, because they require my full participation.
Mark Batterson said it best, “Inaction is action.” Each of the thoughts I shared indicated that fear was camouflaging itself in my life. But Fear is a Liar!
I know I am not alone in feeling this way and I want you to know that you are not alone either.
If you are on my email list, it’s probably because you have found yourself needing to take action in an area of life. The truth is that making the decision to take action does not eliminate the uncomfortable circumstances that may surround the action.
The enemy will present us with situations and emotions that have proven to be successful tools in keeping us in a state of inaction, wrong action, or complacency. But this is not God’s plan for us, the devil IS a LIAR. I declare that you will fulfill the purpose and the assignment God has given you with NO MORE DELAY in Jesus name. As John tells us,
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” John 4:4
I pray that Today marks the day Fear Becomes A Liar in your life and you take the next step of obedience for the assignment on your life. I am with you my sister, let’s let fear know how BIG our God is!
