We are a generation crippled by fear, because we fail to see our unlimited potential in Christ.
Many of us make these bold life changing world changing statements to friends, family and strangers, really anyone willing to listen to us.
But that is all we do. We merely state them without action. We say them with passion but then do nothing with that passion. We simply bottle it up until we are asked again what our hopes and desires are for the future. They sit in a melting pot of what ifs and wishful thinking.
We tend to do nothing with our passions because we lack confidence and awareness of the One who gives us confidence.
We proclaim to know the Father but fail to realize in Him we have unlimited potential to change the world for His glory by His power by His Spirit.
We speak boldly but act like cowards.
We dream of changing the world and admire those who are changing the world in the name of the Father, but what we fail to see, is that we too can change the world for the glory of God.
We have become so caught up in the admiration of those around us that we ourselves forget to act. We have become frozen with fear. Skeptical of our own potential in Christ.
We forget to put our feet into motion.
We forget to believe in ourselves just as the Father believes in us.
We forget that in Him we have unlimited potential.
We forget that He in fact does believe in us, His beloved Children.
We encourage others to grab and take hold of their dreams but fail to encourage ourselves to take hold of our own dreams.
We talk others out and through the “what ifs” in life, but fail to do the same for ourselves. Our belief in unlimited potential seems to stop short when it comes to us.
I am not saying we need to become a generation that is self-absorbed, arrogant, prideful and unwilling to take constructive criticism because in all honesty we already are. but we are also a generation that has allowed fear to stop us dead in our tracks for going for what God has already set before us to achieve.
We speak of being courageous and hope to all become Paul’s one day but in all reality we are cowards hiding behind a Father who has called us to individual greatness through Him and in Him.
We have allowed fear to cripple us into this ungodly belief that we cannot because we are not…(insert any reason why you or I cannot accomplish the will God has set before us)
But this my friends is false and lie straight from the pit of hell, if He is for us and with us, He has surely given us all that we need to pursue our passions and have them come to life, but we must start believing we can because He already has, we must actually start believing in the that Jesus holds, because there is power..now if only we would grab hold of it and use it for His glory.
I’ll leave with this, if the Spirit that conquered the grave lives in us, then why in hell have we allowed fear to cripple us into frozen beings instead of allowing the Spirit to move us?
