Fear steals your destiny.
King Jeroboam feared loosing his status, loosing his life, loosing his subjects, so he began a long tradition of Kings who led Israel to worship other gods. One man’s fear eventually led to a nation in exile, a glorious temple destroyed and countless lives lost. Fear stole a nation’s destiny.
The opposite of fear is perfect love. If you find yourself fearing today, ask God for a greater revelation of His love for you. Because as fear can steal a destiny, a revelation of God’s perfect love can propel you toward your destiny. As God’s perfect love is revealed to our hearts, we will be emboldened to lead people to an encounter with Christ, rebuild relationships and restore hearts back to the Father. We will walk in our God-given destinies. Fear stole a nation’s destiny but powerful perfect love restored destiny to a world. Allow God’s perfect love to propel you into your destiny today.
Jeroboam thought to himself, “Unless I am careful, the kingdom will return to the dynasty of David. When these people go to Jerusalem to offer sacrifices at the Temple of the LORD, they will again give their allegiance to King Rehoboam of Judah. They will kill me and make him their king instead.” So on the advice of his counselors, the king made two gold calves. He said to the people, “It is too much trouble for you to worship in Jerusalem. Look, Israel, these are the gods who brought you out of Egypt!” (1 Kings 12:26-28 NLT)
