1 Peter 5:6-7

Humble yourselves, therefore under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

 There are times when you feel that calling from God to do something crazy and radical with your life, but then you immediately start to worry about where the funds will come from, or how you will even begin to go about it. Your fear and lack of faith turns into an inability to move and follow your heart. For me it was when God called me to do a yearlong mission trip that would cost $15,000. I had never even seen a hundred dollar bill before; how was I going to get that kind of money? But I trusted that God would take care of it and I prayed boldly. Money poured in from the most random people and places. They would say that God moved in their hearts to give me this money. In the end, I had more than enough and I was able to go. My initial fear could’ve resulted in my not following through with God’s awesome plan for my life; but I trusted him and he took care of my every need.

Is there something that you know God wants you to do but you’re scared to step out in faith? Ask God to help you and do it with boldness knowing that he cares for you. Don’t become stagnant and comfortable in your life simply because you doubt that God will pull through for you. He can and he will. You have the God of the universe on your side. With that knowledge, how can you not be bold?

QUESTION 1. Is there some desire that is pulling at you to pursue but you’re too scared?
QUESTION 2. Why are you afraid? Do you think that God won’t pull through for you?
CHALLENGE: Come boldly and humbly before God and pray with faith, because God cares for you and he will always take care of you. Step out in courage.
