Today is a new day. Another day for us to go out and make more headway into the purpose and destiny that God has ordained for us. It’s a perfect day for us to accomplish great things for God’s Kingdom and for our lives. It’s a fresh opportunity to be better than we’ve ever been before.
Yet, some of us are standing still on the path that God has laid out for us. Instead of taking a step forward, we are eyeing the dangers that surround us. We are growing anxious because the whispers of our enemies have made their way to our ears. We are hesitant to do the new thing God has shown us because our imagined fears of failure are playing in our minds. So we stand still.
To those of us standing still, remember the words of the prophet Elisha:
Don’t be afraid!
For there are more on our side than on theirs!
2 Kings 6:16 NLT
We are not facing anything alone. There is a heavenly host who is backing us every step of the way.
No matter how many haters are coming for you, they cannot match the spiritual force that is backing you. Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world. (1 John 4:4) No matter how many pitfalls try to trip you up, they cannot stop you from reaching the finish line. (Proverbs 16:3) No matter how many obstacles try to block your path, it’s your faith in God that will cause you to move mountains. (Matthew 21:21)
So, we have no reason to stand still shaking in fear. As long as we are following God’s will for our lives, we cannot be stopped. As long as we keep moving forward, we will reach God’s promises for us. Remember: …If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
