The number one blessing blocker
What is your greatest set back? What is holding you back? Did you know what the the number one blessing blocker is? Fear.
Yes, fear is our number one blessing blocker. Fear can take over your life. Fear can make you miss your God moments, it can keep you from your blessings, it can hold you hostage in your own life.
Don’t ever let fear decide your fate, don’t allow fear to chose your destiny.
Fear will block you from the blessings from God, it will keep you stuck in your current situation.
Believe me I was an expert in fear so much so that I was trapped in a verbally abusive marriage for 24 years.
I was afraid….afraid I couldn’t make it on my own, afraid that I was all he told me I was for years…stupid, useless, dumb…insert your degrading comment here.
So I stood stuck, unhappy, dying a slow death, all at my own hand, all because of fear.
But when I turned it all over to God, I left fear behind, I replaced it with faith.
Along the way I learned that
the phrase “Do not fear” is in the bible 29 times
The phrase “Fear not” is mentioned 365 times in the bible.
There must be a reason why he kept repeating it, there must have had been lot of hard headed people like me back then.
See for everything that was written in the past was written to teach us…
And for us to have hope!
You cannot have fear and faith, it’s either one or the other.
Fear of everything…will keep you stuck, maybe even for 24 years…
Here’s my advise if you want to let go of fear, you have 2 options:
1.You can face them head on.
2. You can run away from your God given blessings.
Pretty cut or dry, again its one or another, it cannot be both.
Look, here is the bottom line, you need to deal with the pressure, deal with the issues..don’t run
Meet your fears head on…
Again I am a expert in not dealing with my issues, that is why I turned to drugs and alcohol so I didn’t have to deal.
But if you want your blessings, if you want to overcome your fears, you need to man up and deal with it.
Fear is like a bully, when you finally get the courage to stand up to it, it slinks off and then your left thinking is that all I had to do?
Yes, stand up to your fear, remember you are not a quitter, you were built to stand the test.
You can learn to take your difficult moments and turn them into to testimonies!
Courage doesn’t mean your not afraid, it means your not a quitter. Every time I do something new, every time I step out of my box, I am afraid but I don’t let that fear control me anymore,
I do it anyway.
Don’t be fearful of whats in front of you and don’t be afraid of your past, these are all lessons, just know that God can get you through everything!
Be willing to live with out fear, don’t embrace fear, God didn’t give you the spirit of fear.
Here are some bible verses that helped me:
“Be strong and courageous!
The lord goes with you, he will never leave you nor forsake you”
“Even though I walk through the shadow of death I will fear no evil for you are with me!”
“No weapon that its formed against you shall prosper or stand”
Now here are 3 things you can do to live fearlessly:
1. Know who you are.
2. Have faith in God.
3. Never give up on the possibilities of the future.
That’s it pretty simple right? You control fear, fear doesn’t control you.
You have to make a choice, to have fear or faith.
So today my friends remember as I always tell you, the choice is yours. You get to chose, either live in a world full of fear, fear of failing, fear of the unknown, fear of stuff your mind makes bigger than it actually is, blocking your blessings or you can live in faith, step out and know no matter what happens, he’s got you.
