“By an act of faith, he lived in the country promised him, lived as a stranger camping in tents.” Hebrews 11: 8 MSG
Fear will hold you captive in your comfort zone.
The only way to break fear’s hold is by an act of faith.
To go after all that God has called you to, you are going to have to move beyond the fear that holds you there.
Fear can be overwhelming when it is a general mass of unknown anxiety so you need to name it. What are you afraid will happen when you step out in faith? Define it or one part of it. Narrow it down, find the core.
But also be aware of this: facing the fear doesn’t take away the emotion of fear but it allows you to replace the lie that fear is telling you with the truth of God’s Word. When you name the fear you disarm it of its power but it takes awhile for your emotions to fall in line with your faith.
Courage is feeling the fear and stepping out in faith anyway.
You may not know where your journey will end up but you can be sure that the God who calls us to step out in faith does.
Faith is choosing to trust God with the path, every step of the way, the detours, the disasters and yes, the destiny.
God is calling you forward, don’t let fear stop you today.
Name your fear: what is it you are afraid of happening if you step out in faith?
Speak God’s truth: what verse inspires you to have courage?
