Exemption greetings and welcome to the 2nd half of the year 2017.
All through this month, we will be exploring the subject of Vision (Divine Plan & Purpose) and Divine Direction. This is because you and I have glorious destinies in Christ but our central focus will be on some of the things that hinder people from fulfilling their glorious destiny. In Part 1 of this series, I’ll like to begin with the enemy called FEAR.

God does not expect anyone to fulfill Divine mandate with natural ability hence our Divine Destiny in God is way beyond what the natural mind can fathom. In other words, every God-given vision is usually bigger than what the recipient of the vision can naturally handle so most people become crippled with fear when they try to compare their limited natural abilities with the magnitude of the vision God has given to them.

“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward”
[Hebrews 10:15 – (KJV)]

Regardless of the magnitude of your vision, your confidence should be in the God who sees us completely differently from what our natural eyes can see. Biblical accounts show that Moses feared because he was a stutterer yet God saw a deliverer in him. Gideon was fearful and saw himself as the least of all people 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 – including those who lived and walked 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.

In this concluding half of the year, I beseech you to get rid of fear and pursue that vision which God has shown to you because you have a glorious destiny.

Again welcome to the 2nd half and better part of the year 2017!

God BLESS you.
