What are you AFRAID of?
Me? Other peoples driving. A busy highway sends me into an anxiety attack these days.
Doing the wrong thing, when I’m trying my best to do the right thing.
Not seeing God’s purpose for my life.
I’m a big fan of horror movies. Not so much the “here’s a bloody mess” type horror movies, but the ones that make you jump. Spiders don’t necessarily scare me, but if they come into my space >squish<. I do try to keep up with beading a spider for each one that meets the bottom of my shoe. Clowns make me laugh.
You see, the things that are common to be afraid of, don’t do much for me… but disappointing others, disappointing God. That I am terrified of.
Here is what I have learned, and what I strive to remind myself, God works with all of our faults, he uses even our failures for HIS purpose. Every time he made a covenant with his people all he asked was that they be faithful to him. Every time there were a few who kept up their end, but not often and even they failed to some degree. God ALWAYS used their failure for his good.
God’s not done with me. I’m not done trying. My failures will be used for good. I do know this… yet there are times still, where the dark creeps in and I am afraid that I’m not enough.
I love the saying “not today Satan, not today”… and use it to remind myself, the dark creeps with the cold whispers of Satan’s dank breath. He’s been beaten by God and his army so it’s more of a bolstering tantrum than a real threat… unless we fall for it.
Don’t be afraid. Don’t fall for it. Step right over Satan with is kicking and screaming temper tantrum and move on.
For nothing will be impossible with God! Luke 1:3
