Fear has its ways of keeping us away from our dreams and that is so because we give it so much room. The best way to know that the devil is trying to keep you away from something big and great for you is when you identify fear there for He has not given us a spirit of fear but of power , love and super sound mind (my emphasis). Fear does not make you mind sound, it lets fleeting thoughts bundle your progress
I love the Hello Fear by Kirk Franklin. It speaks to me in volumes ( YouTube it and be blessed). I was meditating to day and so thought to share. Have you ever suffered for righteousness sake? being ridiculed by friends and family because you will not bend to certain things and ways? If that has been your testimony, rejoice for you have qualified for honor and Majesty. Ps 104:1
Even if you suffer for it, you’re still better off. Don’t give the opposition a second thought. Through thick and thin, keep your hearts at attention, in adoration before Christ, your Master. Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks why you’re living the way you are, and always with the utmost courtesy. Keep a clear conscience before God so that when people throw mud at you, none of it will stick. They’ll end up realizing that they’re the ones who need a bath. It’s better to suffer for doing good, if that’s what God wants, than to be punished for doing bad. (the message bible)I peter 3:14-
But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.I peter 3:14
But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled I peter 3:14
Prayer: Father I am blessed because by your grace i live right and so I have no fear whatsoever. You are my defense and I walk in progress in Jesus name.
Have a blessed day and give no room for fear.
