How many of you have dreams that seem greater than yourself that at times you are afraid to share it with others?
Know that you’re not alone. It’s normal to have dreams that seem greater than yourself because it was God who put those very dreams in you. He gives us such dreams so that all would see His mighty hand working through our lives. Now is the time to step out and not be afraid to pursue our God-given dreams.
Our God-given dreams can either lead us to step out or step back. If we choose to give in to fear, we will step back and forget His dreams. If we choose to remember that God is with us, we will step out in faith.
God is calling us to step out in this season and pursue the very dreams He has put in our hearts to do.
God called out Joshua to lead the Israelites to obtain their promise land. It was a new and scary task, but God constantly reminded Joshua, “ Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).
This too is God’s command to you:
Be bold and courageous. Step out and don’t be afraid. I am with you.
Don’t let fear stop you from pursuing your God-given dreams. God may be calling you to step into an assignment that is new for you. Maybe you are questioning if you are capable of the assignment, but remember that God equips those He calls. God would never ask you to do something without believing you could do it. Just as God promised to be with Joshua, He also promises to be with us.
This is the season to ride the wave of acceleration He is bringing to the body of Christ. He is giving us His grace to complete His assignments and opening doors for us to reach more people.
As I prayed for this year, God emphasized that we abide in Him. I was led to Psalm 27:4 which says, “One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”
This is the key to abiding in Jesus – being in His presence and fixing our eyes on His beauty. When we become so consumed by Jesus, 𝑯𝒊𝒔 𝒍𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒑𝒆𝒂𝒄𝒆 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒖𝒎𝒆𝒔 𝒖𝒔. He fills us to a place where fear, doubt, or disappointment have no room to enter into our hearts.
Has worry or fear been holding you back from pursuing the venture that God has put in your heart?
Replace every worry with the truth that God is with you. All things are possible with God. Abide in Him and you will walk in His fullness no matter your circumstance. So remember, now is the time to step out.
