Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord you God is with you wherever you go.”
It is time to stir up that ferocious faith of yours! You may not feel as though today you have ferocious faith, but you can have it. Too often we think our circumstances need to line up with what we are believing for before we can truly have faith, and that’s not faith. Faith is standing on what God has to say regardless of what your circumstances or anyone else may have to say. Faith is standing on what God has told you! Don’t let others discourage you. If God has given you His promise, then you stand on that, and that alone! Remember the “crabs in the bucket” story? If you put a bunch of crabs in a bucket, you don’t have to put a lid on it in order to keep them in. If you put one crab in a bucket it may be able to climb out, but if you put multiple in they will keep pulling each other down so they can’t get out. Don’t allow other people to do that to you!
God has a plan for your life and you know that! He is calling you to be strong and courageous in His promises. What has He been telling you? Did He tell you something years ago that you have allowed someone else to convince you couldn’t possibly be called to do? Don’t miss out because of anyone else. Seek God’s face and ask Him what He would like you to do and ask Him to guide you into it. He is always faithful and He has put in you what you need, in order to do what He is calling you to do. He will go with you! You are not alone!
So, what’s holding you back? What have you set aside that you know He has called you to? Ask Him if now is the time. God loves you and His heart’s desire is for you to become all He created you to be so don’t allow anyone or anything else to stand in your way. Dig up that ferocious faith today and step into what He is asking you to do. Ask Him to guide you every step of the way. Write out those verses He has given you and keep them with you to remind you of who it is you are following so you can ward off any attacks satan will try to throw at you. Trust me, if you are following God and trying to accomplish all that He is calling you to do, you will not do it without satan coming against you. Cling to God and His promises! Hold on to your faith and trust in Him knowing that it is in Him that you will find His best!
