For the Girl Paralyzed by Fear
I see you hesitating, I see you holding back from stepping forward for fear of failure, the unknown, and the criticism. I know what it’s like to be paralyzed by fear because I've looked into that same mirror. Whatever is fueling your fear, please don't let it limit your potential when we serve a limitless God.
One night, filled with doubt and discouragement I looked to the moon that was only a sliver of its actual size and thought I felt just as small and insignificant. Then God said to my spirit, "The moon is still the moon in all its phases."
Just because you may feel incapable does not mean that you are. The God of miracles sees your potential and the good plans He has predestined for you. And He believes in you. You may not have trained for this, but you were made for this and so much more.
Dream chasing with God will require risk. Divine dreams require a lack of comfort and a surplus of grit and gratitude. You've got to be willing to leave where you've grown comfortable and know that God will be faithful to show you the next step. Most things worth pursuing don’t come easily. There’s a divine partnership that takes place when we align ourselves with the will of God and begin to prophecy His promises and proclaim them walking by faith.
Sometimes we have to forget how we feel and just go forward. Calling is not found in comfort and fear has no place in your royal identity. His power is made perfect in our weakness. We don’t need a god that can do what we can do. We walk with a God who can do immeasurably more than we could ever ask, hope, or imagine. Dare to be bold in speaking up and stepping out onto the path He has paved before you. You were made to be bold. And we need your story to be told.
The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” - Genesis 12:1-3
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us - Ephesians 3:20
