“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Galatians 2:20 NIV
Are you living in faith or in fear?
Fear holds you back, faith releases you forward.
In fear, you are focused on yourself.
In faith, you are focused on God.
I'm not suggesting that you ignore your fear or be in denial of it. I'm encouraging you to look at it straight on and decide that what you fear will not dictate your life today. That it will not dictate how you react or act. That it will not decided what you do or don't do.
Jesus wants to show you how to go to the next level in your faith walk by allowing him full access and full authority in the places of our hearts that are ruled by fear.
He wants to begin right where you are, and walk with you everyday to show you how.
How to take your fears it to the cross everyday.
How to surrender your fearful vision of what might happen and pick up his faith filled vision of what can happen through him.
This is not an all or nothing life but a day by day choosing faith life.
It is a good thing to live your life through Christ, with his strength and full of his grace.
It is a better thing to let Christ live his life through you- his agenda, your body. His purposes, your gifts. His love, your hands.
What fears are blinding your vision?
What do you need to take to the cross?
What are you trusting Jesus for today?
