If We Knew :: (Day 14)

If we only knew what the enemy knows about us we would never walk fearful or weak in this world again.

He uses the only devices he has, lies, fear, intimidation. He knows the plans for us don't stand a chance. The One that is in us is greater than the one in the world, him (1Jn 4:4).

What if we could get a glimpse of who we really are? I think we would be more confident and have less excuses for not doing things.

The voices of You can't, You shouldn't, You'll never...will disappear

They will have no authority over you any longer.

In the Bible it says we have an enemy. An enemy who prowls around us looking for our weak spots so that he can pounce.

"Be clearheaded. Keep alert. Your accuser, the devil, is on the prowl like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." 1 Peter 5:8

Remember, Noah built an ark when they were in the middle of a drought. Moses doubted and begged God to use someone else.

And my favorite least likely hero, Gideon. Weakest in the family of the weakest clan.

When you start to wonder what you are doing and if you are going to look like a fool. Keep going. Maybe you will look foolish, but at least you are being obedient. And to God that counts for a whole lot.
"If you're not willing to look goofy in the eyes of others at some point, you will never make it to your God-sized dream."(Holly Gerth, Opening the Door to Your God-Sized Dream Devo)
 We are mighty warriors, it's time we started acting like it!

Walk Fearless, my friends.

  1. The Lion of Judah within us is a formidable sight, isn't He? I love your purpose here, of helping us to rise up as warriors and to eliminate fear. The quote about willingness to appear goofy, is quite meaningful to me - and so very true!

    Excellent article and a beautiful place you have here :) I'm glad I met you thru Three Word Wednesday over at Beth's!
