From Glory to Glory Greetings and welcome to the month of September 2016.
This month, we will be exploring the subject of Vision (Divine Plan & Purpose) and Divine Direction. This subject is very important because you and I have glorious destinies in Christ but I will specifically be concentrating on some of the “little bumps” that would hinder a person from fulfilling his or her glorious destiny. The first hindrance I will like us to address this week is the enemy called FEAR.
FEAR is a very common tool the enemy uses to stop many people from fulfilling a glorious destiny. The reason is because the Destiny God has ordained for man is beyond what the natural mind can fathom. It will interest you to know that every genuine God-given vision is usually bigger than what the recipient of the vision can naturally handle. Thankfully, even God does not expect anyone to fulfill any Divine mandate with a natural ability. Fear set in whenever people try to compare their limited natural abilities with the magnitude of the vision God has given to them.
Hebrew 10:35 “Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.” KJV
According to the verse of scripture above, no matter the magnitude of your God-given vision, keep your confidence in God because He sees you a lot differently than your natural eyes can see.
Consider the man Moses. He feared because he was a stutterer but God saw a deliverer in him. Gideon feared because he saw himself as the least in all things but God saw a great leader and Army General in him.
Apostle Paul, on the other hand, believed strongly and proclaimed the possibility of getting all things done because of his confidence in God (Philippians 4:13). That attitude made him overtake all the Apostles that began ministry before him – many of whom even lived with Jesus.
No fearful man ever fulfills his Glorious destiny that is why God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.
Get rid of fear and pursue that which God has shown to you. You have a Glorious Destiny!
God BLESS you
From Glory to Glory!
