Is fear and doubt holding you back? Is your lack of trust and confidence in God hindering your breakthrough? Sometimes I think we believe God will Bring healing or freedom or restoration in a relationship for other people but do we believe that He will do it for us? God is not a respecter of persons, what he does for one he will do for you.
His word says in Matthew 17:20Amplified Bible (AMP)
He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, [a]if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
Fear is why we fail and why we don’t reach our highest potential. I love this poem:
Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson
So the question is, why do we shrink back in fear? Why do we not reach our highest potential? Sometimes we have to do some real soul-searching to figure out the answer. But you need to know what God says about you. You are a child of the King!! You are destined for GREATNESS!! He created YOU to SHINE!! There was a time in my life when I allowed others to dim the light inside of me. Have you ever done that? Precious one, you were born to SHINE, to be a Light in this dark world. Don’t let others hold you down or let there opinion of you dim your light. I’ve been there, done that, bought the T-shirt, lol. It’s a very depressing place to be. I can remember a time when I shared with someone what God had put in my heart and was acting on it and this person was like “Maybe you should do this or that before you try it” I’m sure they meant well but it was someone special to me and I began questioning myself and God and it set me into a depression for like 3-4 months. NEVER let someone’s opinion of you or their opinion of what God has called you to do determine your worth and value!! You know what God spoke to your heart. Your worth and value are in Him and furthermore if He called you to it, He’ll bring you through it NO MATTER WHAT SOMEONE ELSE THINKS!! Never give up!!
Sometimes we have to do it afraid and take a giant leap of faith. Remember all we have to have is faith as small as a mustard seed. We walk by faith and not by sight. So you speak to your mountains. Your mountain could be an addiction, or a broken relationship, a financial need, or healing in your body. Whatever it is having faith as small as a mustard seed is all it takes. God’s promises are true and they are for YOU, so have faith and believe. Sometimes we must take action for our mountains to move. Maybe something we are doing or not doing is hindering our breakthrough. For example in our health, part of our healing is taking responsibility of our health and doing our part. Like getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, eating the right foods, and getting exercise. I’m not saying that these things will heal you but what I am saying is that we have a part to do in our health and our healing. And so often in this busy life we are eating on the go and not eating the right foods, not drinking enough water, definitely not getting enough sleep, and we don’t have time to exercise and then we are begging God to heal us, that doesn’t even make sense. “You need to heal me Lord But I’m going to live a riotous life and not worry about the consequences it may have.” You might not say those words out loud but that’s what our actions show. He’s Word says your body is the temple, but how are you taking care of it? Sometimes we believe we’re waiting on God but actually he’s waiting on us to do our part. So get busy doing your part so God can get busy doing His.
Don’t continue to let fear and doubt hold you back, RISE to GREATNESS, and have FEARLESS FAITH!! The battle is ALREADY WON! Walk in that knowledge, speak LIFE, do your part, believe God’s promises are for you and BE FEARLESS!!
