God’s word for me today confronted one of my deepest fears. I have the fear of being taken advantage of. My life has been marked by times where I’ve gone above and beyond just to see my efforts go unnoticed. God speaks to us and says that He sees us, our actions, our hearts, our potential. In that I now understand where the confidence to stand up against giants comes from. This confidence can send men into the fire without the certainty of being saved. This confidence can send men into the home of lions without distress. This is the confidence I want to strive for. As a child of God, this confidence is my inheritance. Let me be a man who stretches out his hand to grasp and take what God is pouring out to me. I cannot and will not let fear drive my life. There is nothing I lack so why not go above and beyond all the time? There is nothing that can be taken away, so why put limits on generosity?
I love you God. I love your presence and the strength it gives me to stand in the light of your glory.
Yours is the glory, power, and kingdom forever and ever.
