We certainly don’t want to move in the flesh or out of God’s timing, but when God is moving, you can’t be afraid to move with Him. Satan brings fear to our mind and emotions when the Holy Spirit is trying to lead us in a new direction. He tries to use fear to keep us from moving forward with God.
Isaiah 41:10 says, ‘Fear not, for I am with you.’ If you’ve been afraid of something and desire to be free, the time will eventually come when you’ll have to face your fear and not run from it. Just take Jesus’ hand, acknowledge that He is with you, and do it. Don’t be afraid, for He is with you.
If you’re at one of these crossroads in your life, let me encourage you to go forward. Don’t stand still in terror, but take His hand and go forward. Remember, God wants to deliver you from all of your fears!
Prayer Starter: Lord, I want to follow You wherever You lead. Help me to place my fear aside and move forward with You.
