Okay. This is a very nutshell version of the theme that the Lord has seemed to be hounding me with nowadays. This is something Miss Beth taught on & her voice making these points is just not leaving my head. And since im bored & kinda lonely right now, I'm gonna scribble it down here. I hope this is some good to someone out there. I'm so thankful that It's her voice with His truth in my head lately rather than the condeming one that used to be. Praise Him for redemption from the pit!!!!!!..............
It will never be a lack of talent, ability, or the such that will keep us from living n our promised land & being effective.
It will be FEAR. Always fear.
(An emotional ourburst of unbelief. )
We allow fear to keep us from doing exactly what we know we should.
This is ridiculous, because God says to us "I have given u this land, now go stand on it!" Fear doesn't get to be a factor n my life.
(I have to be more afraid of missing God in a situation than of what is before me to do. ) I need to look at each situation and pull the fear out.
(am I refraining only because of fear?
If so, I don't have any choice but to act anyway.
Fear is not a good enough excuse. )
AREAS OF FEAR:
1.) the past (rooted in)
We're projecting an old fear on a new day!
My temptation is to project an old fear on a new PLACE.
I need to just go there!!!! (physically. Literally!)
2). Fear of saying "yes"!
I'm afraid to get out there & learn in front of others,
To make mistakes and not be perfect at first. To look weak.
(2 Timothy 1:6-7)
Let's not allow fear to have any place in our hearts and minds! Be different!!
