Fear of ?

What are you afraid of?

Many people today are scared to death of being used by God. Countless numbers are afraid to respond to God’s call upon their heart, afraid that they will not succeed. The fact is, if God called you, He will equip you. It is only natural to feel inadequate when we know God has appointed us for a work. No matter the task, God is well able to see us through and cause us to be successful at whatever we attempt for Him.

Paul in writing to Timothy said, "That is why I would remind you to stir up – rekindle the embers, fan the flame and keep burning – the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you by means of the laying on of my hands [with those of the elders at your ordination] For God did not give us a spirit of timidity – of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear – but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control." II Timothy 1:6-7 AMPLIFIED BIBLE

Timothy was also struggling with the same feelings you do. Paul reminds Him that this fear is not of God, but God gives us the power to do the work, the love for His work, and the sound mind to settle our fears. What hinders you? The enemy of our souls would have you to be blind in fear, crippled by inadequacy, and maimed by his lies. If you feel God leading you to do something, you are positioned for success when you answer the call. God has it all planned out for you and wants you to respond. Your frame of mind should continue to be, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loves me. I am the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, blessed and not cursed." Remember you are chosen by the Almighty; answer the call and change the world. Can one person change the world? Yes, Jesus did. Now go proclaim Him!
