“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
In such a fearful world, we need faithful christians. But in order to live faithfully, we must live fearlessly. A fearless spirit is required for a faithful life. The problem is that we often agree with the wrong spirits. We listen to the voices and opinions of others, rather than what God says about us. The truth is, we’re called to stand out; we’re called to make a stand even when it’s not popular. No thing can define you, no single person can define you. We can’t let a crowd determine our calling – only HE can speak over your life.
The enemy wants to distract you from your destiny. He will do anything, give you everything, and bring anyone to you in order to distract you. Yeah, we’re not perfect, but we have faith in a perfect God. Think about it, if God is bigger than all of eternity, then He can take care of your life. You have the backing of the Almighty, which means we win no matter what. Even if you jump out and fail, the fact that you jumped out was a success. He equips us with a sword and puts a boldness inside us so we may stand up and fight. We are not threatened by the enemy, we are a threat to the enemy.
When David killed Goliath, he wasn’t looking for a fight, he felt a fight. We need to start feeling the fight that’s going on. It might not make sense to the world – your friends might not agree, your family might look down on you, but that feeling you have, that fight inside you, is from God. Being ‘good’ is not good enough. The standard is no longer simply “not sinning”. We need more believers, we need more leaders, we need more Davids, that will live life with a “can’t lose” mentality.We cannot sit back in apathy when the world desperately needs us. It’s our time to step up, step out, and fight. There’s still giants that need to be knocked down.
“Beware of what people say about you, because they can’t see what’s in you, and in you there’s a faith that fights.”
