What are you so afraid of? Money worries. School worries. Job worries. Relationship worries. Hello? Can I get an amen on relationship worries? You’ve got your own plans for how you want things to be, and God forbid that your small, tiny, sad little plans don’t work out. Oh the horror! You’ll settle for small dreams, because heck, that way you don’t ever get your hopes up.
I’m telling you: GET YOUR HOPES UP.
Small disasters are what God uses to make way for big blessings. Since I got really serious about following the Lord, my circumstances have constantly looked like total destruction might be looming on the horizon. Meanwhile, years later, no destruction. God taught me fearlessness by putting me in one insane situation after another, with His loving hands snatching away every danger, just before it took me out. I know what that dude was talking about, when he said “perfect love casts out all fear.”
And what is it that I’m supposed to be afraid of? No weapon formed against me will prosper, I am more than a conqueror, heck, this world isn’t even my home. What can you take from me that I haven’t already given to God? It was all junk anyway, you should see the blessings God gave me in return: peace, love, wisdom… and He’s gone ahead of me to prepare a place for me.
