Never Hold Yourself Back from God

Have you ever had that aching feeling of God calling you to do something, but you’re too hesitant to do it, and you make up in your head all the reasons why you should not pursue it?

Well, here’s a confirmation, DO IT!

It isn’t by accident He placed that desire in your heart. He purposely called you to be a medium of His love and His word. Lay down to Him all the possible reasons why you think YOU CAN’T and get ready to to hear all His reasons why YOU CAN. 

Don’t hold yourself back from being the best version of yourself that God has planned for you. Let Him lead you to great heights that you yourself could have never imagined on your own, let Him bring you to a beautiful transformation for His greater glory.

But all these are easier said than done, He will most definitely ask you to let go of certain things, certain habits, and certain  relationships, you would have to sacrifice something you hold dearly along the way. But this should not scare you, for we need to decrease in order for Him to increase for the Kingdom of God.

He knows all your strengths and weaknesses. All the things you can do, and all the things you can still do. Rise up to the plate, wave His banner, He will sustain you in this endeavor. All you need to do is stand up and believe that He will give you the strength and the joy throughout this process.  Believe that our God is more than able and that He is always with us, and that He will never forsake us.

Keep your eyes fixed on the creator who has called you to do grander things, and be amazed of the things He will do through your life.

Don’t hold yourself back, rise up, and remember He does not call the equipped, He equips the called. TC mark

Both fearless and fearful
