The Bible assures us that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind. Living in fear is not what the Lord intends for our lives. In fact, to operate in fear is to not operate in faith; and without faith, it’s impossible to please The Almighty.
In this season, God is manifesting Himself greatly through the promises that He has given those who trust and have faith in His word. The problem, however, is that some of us will not receive these promises because we have allowed fear to keep us from being in our proper position. My word for you today; this is not the time to be scared.
The evil one has tripped you up long enough. He has the believer thinking that what once was affects what now is. Don’t allow past hurts, let downs, or disappointments keep you from your appointed place of destiny. God has already aligned things in your favor; He’s just waiting for you to get in alignment to receive them.
Perhaps it was a failed business venture, a job you didn’t get, disappointing news, or maybe even a failed marriage. Whatever it was, do not be afraid to keep moving forward. Disappointments will come, but it’s up to you to decide on whether or not you will be discouraged about them. Why not take the disappointments and failures, or even the past hurts, and use them as catalysts? Why not see all of these scenarios as opportunities for God to manifest His power. This also serves as a chance to see that what you’ve been through, or what you’re experiencing, is just a pit stop to where God is taking you.
Things may look bleak, but rejoice; it’s the breaking of a new day, a new season, a new era in your life. Now is not the time to allow past hiccups to scare you into not moving into your wealthy place. This year has been declared as the year of double, but you must be in position to receive. Line up, and get what God has for you! Now is not the time to be scared!
