Fear is a Liar!

“He who has begun a good work in you will complete it...”

Philippians 1:6 NKJV

[6] being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;

Has God called you to do something you don’t feel capable of doing? Could you think of a dozen others better suited for the job? It doesn’t matter what you think, God didn’t choose somebody else! He chose you in spite of your limitations and insecurities.

God is is not intimidated by your weaknesses.

Your inadequacies don’t surprise Him. In fact, His ‘power works best in weakness’ (2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT). Jon Walker says: ‘You may…hide your weaknesses from others, but you can’t hide them from God.’

He created you (do you think He made a mistake?). He created you with weaknesses to keep you on your knees…without them to push you back to God you’ll get prideful…and He won’t allow you to use them as an excuse for avoiding your mission or ignoring your purpose.

If God is calling you to a monumental task, He will equip you to complete it – and that includes the Holy Spirit working from inside you. So focus on His strength, not yours. When you focus on your strength you’ll fail before you even try but when you focus on God’s strength, you know that ‘you’re more than a conqueror’ and you ‘can do all things through Christ who strengthens’ you.

Don’t think about how incapable you are for the task. Remember, God is bigger than anything you face, no matter how overwhelming it may appear.’ The Bible says we were ‘created in Christ…to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do’ (Ephesians 2:10 NIV 2011 Edition).

God’s plans are never an afterthought. He designed you for a specific purpose, and the One who ‘began a good work in you will carry it on to completion’.

So instead of letting fear stop you, let it motivate you to get up, go and keep going!
