“Everything you want is on the other side of fear” is a popular quote used to make us believe that fear separates us from what we want so if we could just jump to the other side, then we would see the world of possibilities.
It worth noting that fear is a spirit, some imaginations, that limit man from being who God created him to be. It is also a major weapon the enemy uses to keep man bound in his comfort zone. With this backdrop, it’s tempting to believe that Everything you want is on the other side of fear.
- Is that always the case?
Well! as believers our Bible tells us that God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear. Therefore we fear no fear. As interesting as it could be, what then separate us from our dreams, aspirations, desires, among others?
God, through the Holy Spirit, reveals His purposes for our lives and further shows us how to achieve those purposes. Understand that His purpose for my life is different from yours, the same as yours is different from your family and friends.
- Sidetrack, a major challenge.
However, we are easily swayed by other desires because we want to compete. It can be recalled from the disciples that each had different assignment and they were able to pursue that with love and passion and nothing could intimidate them.
- Making it more personal
When you identify your purpose and allow your spirit to sync with the Holy Spirit, He guides you at every stage of your life. He will speak to you and all you have to do is to OBEY. Yeah! JUST OBEY.
- Obedience is the KEY
Obedience unlocks the supernatural. Abraham got hold of the promise through Obedience. Here is what is tricky, God word(s) wouldn’t or may not ALWAYS make sense to you. But someway somehow, you’ve got to do it. The problem isn’t about fear BUT about your willingness to do what He tells to do.
- Does fear keep us from obeying God’s spoken Word?
I don’t think so. I believe it’s TRUST issue. When you are absolute about the things of God and fully trust Him with your life, you do what He says without questioning the logic behind. When the weather guys say there will be rain, we carry umbrella because we tend to believe them from previous predictions. Sometimes the sun might be on in the morning but we carry umbrella anyway. It’s same with God and His Word. When His word comes to you about your situation, JUST DO IT. You do it because you Trust Him, and you Trust Him because you Love Him. “Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.” (1 John 4:18, NLT)
A simple clue;
What has been on your mind lately? What one thing do you feel so strong about? What does the Holy Spirit keep telling you to do? Know that the miracle is in the doing so act on the word. Act on your Faith and always remember Obedience unlocks the supernatural.
