Could you be honest with me right now and admit that there are things you want to do, but haven’t, because you’re afraid?
Are you afraid:
– It won’t work
– You’ll run out of money
– You might lose your job
– You might lose all your resources and won’t have anything left to pay the bills
– You’ll fail
I’m not saying that we shouldn’t count the cost.
I’m not saying that we shouldn’t be responsible.
I AM saying DO NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE BEING AFRAID OF FAILURE!!!
I can’t tell you how many times that I have been scared out of my wits but I took that first step. I stepped out “onto the water” and God kept me from sinking.
Life is too short to live in fear. In fear, you have no power or forward momentum. It sucks all of the wind out of your sails.
Matthew 9:29, says “According To Your Faith Will It Be Done To You.” Notice that it says according to your faith, NOT according to your fear. The Bible also mentions the phrase “fear not!” over 300 times. When the Teacher repeats something, that is a cue to pay attention because it’s important!
Fear gains you nothing, Faith gets you EVERYTHING!
