I’m scared. I wish it wasn’t true. I wish that I could be the man that I pretend to be. Confident, bold and not worried. Fully trusting God with my whole life. Trusting His timing and trusting that I don’t have to earn anything.
I wish this was me, but it’s not.
I worry that I will run out of things to say. That I won’t ever see the things I have begged God for come to fruition. That I will leap and there will be nothing on the other side. That I will lead and no one will follow. That I will fall and take my family with me. That my failures will affect the ones I love the most.
I worry that my kids will be safe and grow to love the Lord and love their family.
Worry fills my mind. If you are worried and scared, you are not alone. In your greatest fear and worry God is there. In the deepest, blackest night He is there if we reach for Him.
He whispers to our Spirits to step out on the water. (tweet it) He whispers so softly that we say, “Is that you God?” If we would only listen to Him instead of the shroud of doubt and shame that we let invade our minds. For He died for this doubting sinner once and for all; doubt and shame have no place here.
We have an enemy and it is Satan. So I will stand and say that I need you Jesus, that we need You. We need you to soothe us with your peace. Whisper your dreams over our lives while we sleep. Let us dream big dreams for Jesus’ name. We trust you Lord…help us to trust You.
Let these verses restore your faith in God’s plan for your life. Walk in His righteousness this week. It is His strength not ours.
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
1 Corinthians 6:14 “And God both raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power.”
2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 “And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.'”
The only one that will ever be perfect is Jesus. He will perfect us. Today I ask for an extra level of peace and faith for you and I. Forgive us for our unbelief. Be still and know that He is God. Be faithful in what He asks you to do today and today only. Be blessed on your journey.
How can I pray for you this week?
