I don’t know about you but sometimes, I feel like I have to conquer my fears before I can move forward into what God is calling me to do. Then I look back at so many people in the bible who were called “Men and Women of Faith” and they took risks, they did great things… while they were still afraid.
I’m coming to think faith isn’t about believing in God when conditions are right, it’s trusting in Him when all circumstances cry out against it. Faith is being in the valley, in the storm, in the raging waters, in the fire, and clinging to God. Sometimes, it doesn’t look like a big gesture, just a small, inward decision to trust Him.
Princesses, I’m here to tell you that where you are at, is where God is, and He is here to help you.
When God talked to Moses in the burning bush, Moses first hid! Then later, when God called him to go to Pharaoh and free his people, he basically said, “Who am I that I should go?” Moses was scared. Also, he stuttered and maybe didn’t feel qualified. But God didn’t say, I’ll heal you, give you riches, and make you perfect then you can go. Nope! Moses was honest and God’s reply was: Go as you are, I’ll be with you.
I think that first step towards Egypt was braver than anything else he did in his life.
Princesses, I don’t know what hurdles you are looking at, but I challenge you to take that first step. You may not be able to overcome them alone, but God will be faithful, despite how things look or what you think is impossible. I believe you are a princess and God has great plans for you.
When you can’t, He can.
Take the hand Jesus is offering to you and trust Him as you go. God loves you, and I believe if you trust Him, He will do beautiful things through your life.
Isaiah 41:10 NIV
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
