Fear is debilitating. Fear can prevent us from walking in or using the gifts we have. In the story of the servants given the talents, it was fear that prevented the servant from using the gift he was given.
Some of us fear getting out of God’s will. We fear being presumptuous. But God is a loving Father and even if we didn’t hear God just right, even if we miss it, God will find us. He can redeem our dumb mistakes.
You were equipped with your gift for such a time as this and your church, your community, your family are waiting for you to step out and use your gift. As you prophesy your prophetic anointing will increase, as you teach, you will become a better teacher, as you sing, you will become better. Use what God has given you!
Come on guys. Let’s not allow fear to prevent us from starting that business, writing that book, starting that ministry, pursuing that dream. As you step out in faith, take a risk, do something God will meet you where you are.
“‘Yes,’ the king replied, ‘and to those who use well what they are given, even more will be given. But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away. (Luke 19:26 NLT)
