What’s the worst possible thing that could happen if we started believing, embracing, and having total faith in God?
What’s the worst possible thing that could happen if we refused to keep carrying around the dead weight of old pain?
What’s the worst possible thing that could happen if we stopped dwelling on what someone else did or said to us, and we just forgave them?
Now think of all the best case scenarios for each of those examples.
Father, I know I sometimes speak “big talk” and then let fear grab ahold of me, and I go silent. I don’t want to be fearful. I want to see past obstacles and understand the lie of fear, so that I’m never phased by it.
Courage is walking in fear and attempting the task anyway. I want fear to be a tool to assist me, not shackles that bind me. I want to be aware of the thing or situation that causes me fear, quickly assess the true risks, and follow Your lead.
I want to walk with Your peace in my heart and life. I waste too much precious time contemplating, complaining, and hiding in fear. I’m here Father. As a believer and follower of Your son, Jesus, I praise You and I humbly pray to You. Amen.
