Do you ever wonder how you will do all that you want to do? Do you feel smaller than the bigger thing facing you? Do you have great ideas, called to do mighty things but feel nervous, afraid and wonder how in the world you will do those things? You are not alone. And truly, you are not alone... - the God of all, that is good, is with us!
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. ~Deuteronomy 31:8
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
God is with us. We try to believe that right? So, if God is with us at all times and we believe that, - then we don't do or go into any situation alone. We have Him with us through everything we are called to do. With each step He is there with us.
In my past experience's when I had to speak to a group of people or do something out of my comfort zone, I was so nervous, scared really, but when I thought of the God's help and asked for His help, I realized immediately I wasn't alone. And since He was with me and what I was about to do is all about Him, I had such peace come to me when I realized it is all Him anyway. All that is good in me is Him. When we walk to a podium or go to work, it is all Him. When we help a friend or visit a hospital, it is all Him. It is not in our power, it is not in our talents, it is in His!
That knowledge is so freeing for me. The pressure is off of us. We don't have to perform, we don't have to be perfect, we don't have to talented, we don't have to be anything except what God wants us to be and is through us. If we go in God and in His power, it is all Him. Whew! Think about that for a minute, try to grasp this, it is all Him.
The next step you take, take it with God and walk in His power. Walk in HIS power! Try it, say it... "I walk in His power, I walk in His power!" It is so freeing and so liberating to know we can do it because we walk in His power!
Smiles to your day,
