There are so many thoughts and so much information flying around every thought or decision we make each day and there is a hidden,enemy making sure we get the wrong info, its hard to decide, or is it? The Word of God is simple clear and the truth.
Make That Decision
[I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down…!
– Hebrews 13:5, The Amplified Bible
If God has called you to do something, something that you think in the natural is impossible, chances are the devil has been bombarding you with thoughts of doubt, fear and discouragement.
But don’t let him lead you down that road. Don’t let him keep you from meditating on God’s ability and faithfulness to get the job done. Resist the temptation to meditate on your problems and inabilities…which is worry.
Stop struggling. And start resting. Relax. God knows that what He has called you to do is impossible. He knows you are having a problem with that fact. And He doesn’t mind waiting while you draw on His Word and develop the courage you need for the task.
You see, you don’t have to panic. Just keep reminding yourself that as long as you have your Bible and your faith, you can do anything God tells you to do.
Put thoughts about your own weaknesses behind you and focus instead on the awesome ability of God. Start saying to yourself, Hallelujah. God is with me! He will not, He will not, He will not in any degree leave me helpless, nor forsake me, nor let me down!
Then open your Bible and choose to believe what it says about you. Treat it as God’s blood-sworn oath to you. Keep it in front of your eyes. Keep it in your ears. Keep it on your lips. Make a quality decision to stick with it until the might of God Himself rises up within you and overwhelms the fear.
Once you make that decision, there’s no turning back. It’s on into the promised land!
