Fear is the Enemy of Faith

I pray that you are encourage as you read this. I was driving this morning and I couldn’t wait to stop to share this message that God began to deal with me on because it has been something I struggled with myself. That struggle is with fear. Fear is the enemy of faith and fear keeps you in bondage. God has not called you to bondage, but He has called you to freedom in your faith. This freedom is not to fulfill the desires of the flesh, but it is a freedom to tap into opportunities that are set before you. Fear keeps you from embracing opportunities and sharing opportunities that will bring freedom to others as well. Fear has kept you lock jaw and has silence your voice. You were not born and gifted by God to be silence. Your voice matters, your words have life and divine opportunities connected to. However, because of fear of rejection you have avoided even some business opportunities. You are afraid of other people reactions and you are afraid of them saying “no” to the opportunity you want to share. Beloved, fear of the “no” that you may receive from others is keeping you from the “YES” you can receive from the right people. So, I encourage you to settle within yourself today that you will no longer let fear keep you captive. Let faith connect you to your God -given destiny, God-given purpose and God-given opportunities. I encourage you to spend time in prayer because prayer increases your sensitivity to God’s voice and leading so you can choose wisely the right opportunity and the timing to embrace it and launch out. #shontelinspires
