Fear will not only keep us bound, but it will keep the Lord from blessing others through us, if we allow it to. See, the Lord has given each of us assignments to fulfill with the time that he has allotted us, and we are the only ones that can fulfill them in the unique way that he has designed us to. If we allow fear to keep us from doing that which we have been called to do, then the world will not reap the benefits of the blessings.
It’s mind boggling to me, honestly. To think that the Lord has an assignment for our lives that has the potential of impacting others is just beautiful. The problem is we forfeit that if we allow fear to keep us from pursuing it. Let me say that another way, the Lord cannot bless others through us, if we allow fear to stop us from doing what he calls us to do. Folks, there is a lot at stake!
I’m sure that you have heard the phrase, THE RICHEST PLACE IN THE WORLD IS THE GRAVE YARD. Why? Because there you will find books that were never written, movies that were never produced, businesses that were never launched …. due to fear! This is a BIG deal, my friends! Not doing the things we know we are called to do because of fear is HUGE!!!
So what do we do when fear enters the equation? Well, we do “it” anyway! That’s right, we face fear head on by doing the things we are called to do despite it. We acknowledge the fear, embrace it, seek the Lord, and DO IT! Each time we do, we get a little stronger. As we get stronger, facing our fears, become easier. This process will not only bless others, but it will help us to become all that we were created to be!
On that note, what are YOU not doing out of fear? What is that one thing that you know you are being called to do, but you are avoiding it because you are afraid of how you may look to others if you do? Perhaps you’re fearful of rejection or maybe afraid of failing. Do it anyway! Who cares what others may think or if it doesn’t work out exactly the way you think it should. The fact is, it will work out the way it supposed to, and you and many others will be blessed because of it!
I love you, guys! I hope that you have a wonderful Thursday and an even better weekend! I’ll see you here Monday and as always on Facebook -https://www.facebook.com/thefaithfilledtraveler/ until then. Blessings to all!
