Today I want to talk about an unusual revelation I had last week as I was working through the scriptures. For brave people, fear is actually a gift. You’ll hear many sermons about how fear corrupts, and it does, or how fear can paralyze us and yes, it can. But if you’re brave, and I think you are, there’s also a gift in it. When you’re courageous and receive a dream in your heart from God, that dream may cause you to feel overwhelmed and unsure of yourself. But take note that God’s plan for you may seem massive, but it’s good.
At times, insecurity may keep even a brave person up at night. You may be afraid to write that book, start a business, or deliver a message as directed by God. These fears we experience deep down inside are a hint, a crystal clear signpost, and confirmation of what we are to accomplish and the direction we are to move in. Many of us need more clarity about the next steps in our lives. Well, I want you to consider starting with something you’re scared to take on, because God’s plan for you is big!
Friend, in certain circumstances, fear becomes a gift because it shows us who we’re supposed to become and where we’re supposed to go. Let’s embrace God’s plan, which may seem frightening and massive at times, but as we partner with Him along this journey, we will have success. The gift God is revealing is that if we trust our lives to Him, He can do great things through us!
