Topic: More Than Conquerors [Friday January 12th, 2018]
So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him. — Romans 8:8 (AMPC)
God gives us dreams for the future, but sometimes those dreams can seem impossible. That’s when fear starts to set in.
If you are determined to never give up on your dream, then you have to take chances—you have to be courageous. And you need to understand that courage is not the absence of fear; it is pressing forward when you feel afraid. So when you face situations that threaten or intimidate you, pray for God’s grace to give you boldness and courage so you can move ahead in spite of the feeling of fear.
The spirit of fear will always try to keep you from going forward. The enemy has used fear for centuries to try to stop people, and he is not going to change his strategy now. But you can defeat fear, because you are more than a conqueror through Christ who loves us.
I want to encourage you to be determined to face fear when it comes against you. Stand firm, trusting God and knowing He is always with you.
Prayer Starter: God, even though I might feel afraid, I believe Your Word, which says that I am more than a conqueror. I can accomplish every dream You’ve given me because You love me and give me the victory.
