Fear can be one of our biggest stumbling blocks to change. We fear the unknown and we fear that we may fail but we cannot let fear hold us back from stepping into change.
We need to make an exchange with God. We need to give Him all our worries and all our fears and take on His strength and His courage. We need to increase our faith to decrease our fear.
Fear will keep us trapped where we are, resisting change and all the good and wonderful things that it can bring, but if we have the core values that God is good, that He never fails us, that He strengthens us, provides for us and will always help us then we will be free from the fear holding us back.
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13
We need to hold true to our convictions and our core values and believe. To believe in the Almighty God and that He is who He says He is and that He will do what He said He will do and step into change with faith and courage.
So I encourage you to step closer to God, to feel His presence and hear His voice and receive His strength and courage. Remind yourself of all the times that you have boldly stepped out before and God has been there strengthening and upholding you. Your history with God is living proof of His love and faithfulness to you. And lastly, surround yourself with people who will encourage you and cheer you on as you embrace your new season of change.
