I know that sounds backwards. It’s meant to.
It’s meant for those moments when you are so motivated to step out and act out, but then you chicken out.
Like when that awesome song you love starts playing in your earbuds and you think you could just bust the most fantastic moves in the middle of the gym. But then real life comes into focus and you remember you are just not that coordinated.
Yeah…too many other examples to list. But what big life changing things have you missed out on by allowing fear in the face of a moment of courage. What God thing did you miss out on by quenching the spirit.
As we start taking ourself less seriously and understanding that what other people think doesn’t matter as much, we’ll get a lot more big things done. Because it is only God and His glory that will matter in the end.
How many time have you had a purpose placed in your spirit only to doubt that you have the ability to make it happen? Well, you may not. It happens to me occasionally. But that shouldn’t always stop us from trying.
If God has purposed something in your spirit He is also faithful to help make it happen.
You can count on that. I’ve seen Him do it to many time personally for me and for others. I’m not saying I always jump to do everything, because I am not perfect. But I am still trying and growing and that is what each of us have to commit to doing.
We have to have courage and faith then take the first step.
This week on my LIFE Group we will be talking about Moses and his doubts when faced with a monumental ask from God. I can’t speak, I can’t lead, who should I say sent me and other doubts that Moses had. But God still encouraged him to his purpose.
What stretch goals have you set for yourself based on a prompting by the Holy Spirit? Take time to discuss in the comments and let other readers encourage and help you on your journey.
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
James 1:5-8 NASB
