Grace morning on this fantastic and fabulous Friday.
We all battle fear. Fear constantly tries to elbow faith aside, hoping to derail God’s plan and purpose in our lives. Fear keeps many of us from dreaming God-sized dreams, persuading us to settle for safety and comfort instead of riding the waves of possibilities. When faith yanks your fears out of the darkness and into the light, you can see them for what they really are – powerless.
God always honors your choice to walk straight ahead through fear. Fear trains you to anticipate the worst while faith teaches you to expect the best – even when that “best” looks a lot different than you thought it would.
For many believers in difficult situations, fear takes a powerful hold. The reasons, whether real or imagined, abound: the possibility of illness or death; loss or rejection; failure or the uncertainty of the future.
When you are weak, weary and without strength in an unexpected circumstance. It can very well cause you to feel unready to stand, and unsure of what step to take next. When you face this moment, trust God to bring you through.
God will provide you with HIS strength to face any situation head-on, in your time of need.
Ask God to lift up your heavy arms and fuel you for the tasks ahead. God will completely consume the weakness of your life and make you strong.
“Be strong! Be fearless! Don’t be afraid and don’t be scared by your enemies, because the Lord your God is the one who marches with you. He won’t let you down, and he won’t abandon you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6 CEB
Remember the acronym for fear is ‘Future Events Appearing Real.’
Live, love, and laugh your way through this fruitful Friday!
