Do It Afraid
How would you feel if God told you to leave your home, your family, and everything that is familiar and comfortable and head out to who knows where?
That is the challenge Abram faced, and it frightened him. But God kept saying to him, “Fear not.” That’s the same message He gave to Joshua when He called him to lead the children of Israel to the promised land.
You want to wait until you’re not afraid before you do anything, but if you do that, you will accomplish very little for God. Abram and Joshua had to step out in faith and obedience to do what God had commanded them to do—and they had to do it afraid.
That’s what you will have to do to accomplish the job God wants you to do. But He’ll be with you, saying, “Fear not.”
Prayer Starter: Father, I thank You that my faith can grow stronger as I put my trust in You. I know I might need to step out and do something afraid. Thank You for Your faithfulness and Your work in my life, amen.
