Fear of Change – Walk By Faith Anyway

Whatever that thing is that you know you must do, should have already done, but fear is holding you back…DO IT TODAY…or set a specific date to complete it.

Sometimes we use God as an excuse not to move forward. We take our trial, tribulation, illness, relationship, need, etc. to Him in prayer -perhaps served with much whine- and ask Him to or tell Him how we want Him to fix it. Then we go back into our situation or circumstances until it becomes unbearable only to run to Him again and make our plea. 

Perhaps, in some cases, the time is not right and, as it is written, we must wait upon the Lord. But in many cases the Lord is waiting on us. He has given us the answer, shown us the path, and made it very clear what we must do…but we still do nothing. Why? Fear!  Fear of the unknown, fear of shame, fear of ridicule, fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear…fear…fear.

God NEVER promised that we would not feel fear,  but He did instruct us to be of good courage and have faith. He tells us that tribulations will be a part of our life. 

God never said He would give us a detailed plan of all that we may have to go through to get to the other side…but He did say His presence would go with us. If He did give us a detailed itinerary, we would not be walking in faith. 

So  take your trial, tribulation, illness, relationship, need, etc. to Him in prayer and then DO what He leads you to do. The journey, like a roller coaster, may be a succession of mountains and valleys but you will be delivered through and to the other side. 

When you step out in faith today and face that fear – your fear – be of good courage and of good cheer. God is the only Good One to exist and it is His courage and His cheer in which you are filled. 

If you are afraid, then do it afraid. Know that if God has called you to do something that He is with you and will equip you to succeed. 


“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Philippians 4:13 AKJV

Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Deuteronomy 31:6 AKJV

And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.
Luke 18:19 AKJV

These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
John 16:33 AKJV

A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.
Proverbs 16:9 AKJV

12. Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me, and I will hearken unto you. 
14. And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart. 
15. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord ; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
Jeremiah 29:12-14 AKJV

And the Lord said, if you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. 
Luke 17:6 AKJV
