keeps most people from achieving their greatest dreams?
FEAR is what keeps most
people paralyzed and ineffective. Fear of the unknown; Fear of moving outside
their comfort zone; Fear of failure; and yes even Fear of Success.
you understand what fear is, you can break its power.
Expectations Appearing Real
you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but
you received the Spirit of sonship." - Romans 8:15
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out
fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made
perfect in love." - 1 John 4:18
wants YOU to have more!
As Christians, we are told in
John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and
destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
That's right! God does want you to have more. He wants you to have more
abundance in your life. And he wants you to NOT limit Him in what He can do for
YOU. "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
- Ephesians 3:20
Chronicles 4:9-10 we read about Jabez who cried out to God and asked,
"Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory!
Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from
pain. And God granted his request.
for you today is that you will begin to understand the love God has for you and
the plans He has ordained for your life. I live in full expectation that God
will not fail us and that He will begin to provide more than we can ask for or
imagine. Indeed, He has already begun!
You can experience more abundance
in your life and can be successful in all that you do! And, like Paul in the
Ephesians passage, you can believe as I do that "I can do everything through
him who gives me strength."
