Some mornings, many mornings I wake up afraid.
Not with anxiety, but I’m afraid to put myself out there. I’m afraid because the previous day I encountered an awkward situation. Some days I encounter people who are difficult, some days I’m afraid of rejection.
That fear is a spirit coming against me to put me in a corner.
Me- I didn’t get enough sleep! I slept 6 hours.
God- It’s more than enough.
Sometimes I feel like I need more encouragement, more approval, more money, more sleep, more this or more that….and it prevents me from going forward.
But then God will tell me to get out of bed- He’ll say “you are enough”.
How many of you linger in bed or at home, afraid to go out? Because you feel like you are not enough? And so even though you are lonely and want to make friends, you’d rather stay in bed? Even though you want to get married, you don’t want to ask anyone out?
You want to have a family, a tribe of friends that understand, but you’re petrified of rejection.
You do ministry and have to fundraise, but you’re scared of rejection or judgement so you’d rather not ask. And you struggle on your own.
Sure it is easier to stay in your bed but do you know that you are submitting to fear? The enemy wants you to live in fear. He doesn’t want you to have friends. He doesn’t want you step into your promises, He doesn’t want you to meet your husband/wife because if you don’t put yourself out there, you will never meet your husband/wife.
God wants you to live in freedom.
He says YOU ARE FREE!
You are free to run, fail, make mistakes, cry, even experience trauma, heal and get up again.
GET UP! RISE!
IT is not ABOUT being perfect, it’s about living in freedom and knowing God will always embrace you in His arms, never judge you or reject you. You are always right in His eyes.
Some of you have also been submitting to uncomfortable situations because you’re afraid to speak your truth. Instead of living in freedom, you’d rather submit to peoples’ expectations of who you should be….today make a choice to speak your truth loud and clear.
