Do you want true strength? Do you want the power to do anything?
This was the thought God gave me this morning, in the quiet of my closet. Being powerful and courageous looks different sometimes. Instead of pushing through to your goals and accomplishing the dreams you have set for your life, no matter what, it could mean letting go and letting God do whatever. In this case, I have a specific issue.
It’s common knowledge that we have free will. God gave us this so we’d be free to genuinely love Him. He states in Mark 8: 34-35 that, if we want true life, we need to drop our own desires in order to follow Him and support His kingdom. By extension, He is also saying, you have a choice!
Some people say a little fear is good because it keeps you out of harms way. Our innate, natural need to stay unharmed and healthy, keeps us from jumping off a bridge or driving our car at maximum speed. Fear of pain keeps us out of trouble for sure, but there are times in our life, when we allow fear to have too much freedom. See what fear does if left unchecked and what you can do about it.
