Can I be real with y’all? I have struggled with fear my whole life. It has kept me from stepping out in faith. It has kept me from pursuing Yahweh-given opportunities. It has caused me to ruin friendships. I can go on and on. While I do not suffer with fear like I used to (I used to have severe social anxiety), I still have that fear of stepping out in faith and doing what Yahweh has called me to do.
“Am I TRULY hearing from Yahweh, or is it just me?”
“Is this a lack of peace or just fear speaking?”
“Is this fear reality speaking to me or is it just a false belief made up in my mind?”
Let us get Biblical here: Fear is not of Yahweh and needs to be cast back down to the pit of hell where it first came from!
And can I also be real about something else? I am terrified to step into my calling! I am terrified that I will not be able to handle it. That my ministry will become so big, that I will mess it all up and it will just be total chaos and it will just be a total disaster!
Y’all, I am not perfect, far from it and I will never claim to be perfect, either. I am a sinner that was born again into righteousness, just like the rest of y’all. I have my struggles and insecurities. I have my doubts and fair share of trials, tests and dry seasons.
So what is the fear dare? Let us all challenge each other to do something that we fear, each and every single day, whether big or small, it is still a step towards progress! Just go ahead and do it! Face fear and tell it that it has no right to stay in your life! Feel the fear and do it anyways! Yahweh has given you the boldness and courage to overcome that fear that you currently feel right now! And, always remember, His perfect love casts out all fear. Every little bit, centimeter, millimeter and ounce of fear. It has to leave at the name of the mighty name of Yeshua (Jesus).
Today, the step that I am going to make to overcome fear in my life, is by doing something that will draw me much closer to my destiny and calling that Yahweh has placed upon me since before time ever began and this earth was even thought of.
I love all of you and may Yahweh bless each and every single one of you!
