Do It Anyhow
By Nina Roach
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. -Isaiah 41:10
God's protection and love never run out! There comes a time of your life where you must stand for the call that God has given you and the purpose that He has sent you. I recently planted my soles in the heavenly soil of my call as a Pastor and stood my ground as I was preparing for one of our Sunday worship experiences, fear came to visit and distract me from enriching the lives of others.
I knew that the plans of God met opposition. God doesn't send a spirit of fear to stop His plans; that's a tactic of the enemy. He wants to illegally impart his fear in born again believers hearts, while the Spirit of God is shouting within our spirits to fear not! The purpose of this week's devotional is to encourage you as well as prepare you for fear's visitation.
When the enemy comes in like a flood, let him have a Jesus greeting, "Be gone!" Rise to the occasion with holy boldness and do what God has called you to do. Do it anyhow! One of the ways to expel all fear is train your heart "soul" to abide and receive God's love by the daily iDecree declaration of faith and take 15 minutes or more to Journey through the Word. Don't tolerate any fear another day. Come, let's stand together!
