Grow in Faith not fear



This weekend my daughter wasn’t feeling well, her allergies were bothering her. I gave her some medicine to take, and it was a decent size, and she became so worried about swallowing it that she couldn’t do it. She just kept saying I don’t want to, and I don’t know why I can’t, but I can’t. I talked to her for like an hour letting her know it wasn’t going to hurt her. But she still couldn’t do it.


I think we can be like that with God. He has something for us, He can show us what it is but because we have never done it before, or we just have all these questions we just freeze, and we can’t do it and we don’t know why.


Isaiah 41:10 says, “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”


How often do we let the unknown really dictate what we do. I know I have had times where that unknown outweighed any logic I had, and I let it decide what I did and did not do.


Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”


The Lord will go ahead. So really if God had opened the door there is no need to let the enemy speak lies of fear over me. I can overcome the uncertainties and know that in what God has for me and I can stand firm in and that He brought be to it and will see me through it.


We have this rooster and for the most part he is nice and doesn’t generally care when we go in to get eggs, but some days (really when I go in), he will run after me and try to peck at me. Now I’m not afraid of this rooster but it does make me apprehensive to go in and try to get the eggs.


Is that still a fear? Maybe, I don’t know but I know that I can and have gone in there before and I know its ok but sometimes I just don’t want to deal with it.


2 Timothy 1:7 says, For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.


So here it is I God does not give me the timidity but gives me courage so when things come up no matter if they are the unknown, something I am afraid of, or just have some apprehension for I can turn to God and pray and ask for clarity first to see if I should proceed and then if the answer is yes, remember that He is guiding me and it will be ok.
