Fighting fear: I’ve been thinking a lot lately about God’s promises to us, and how sometimes it’s so hard to believe God when he says he has good things in store for us.
I was reading the Joshua 2 the other day, and it really spoke to me
9 And she said unto the men, I know that the Lord hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. 10 For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. 11 And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for theLord your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath.
The Lord had called the children of Israel to greatness. He promised them so many awesome things, but they were so afraid because when they went to the land that God promised them, the people were so big and scary. The children of Israel felt that there was no way they could accomplish what God called them to accomplish, because they were afraid…
But the funny thing is that everyone else knew that the children of Israel were blessed, and everyone else knew that whatever the children of Israel decided to do they would succeed…Everyone else was AFRAID OF the children of Israel, no matter how small they were or how weak they looked… But the Children of Israel saw things differently…
It got me thinking of all the amazing things God has in store for you and for me. We spend so much time focusing on our past mistakes, and on all the things that other people have that we don’t have. When in reality, we are already blessed… and people looking at us can see that God has awesome things in store for us…
So I pray that my eyes will be open, so that I can see myself the way God sees me, and that I will be strong and courageous to do what God calls me to do, and to be where God wants me to be, so that I can accomplish that purpose.
How about you? Are you ready? Are you fighting fear?
