Fear can cause spiritual paralysis where we experience a deterioration of faith accompanied by a loss of purpose. At one point or another in life, this can happen to all of us. Whether we’re afraid of moving to a new location, getting married, starting over in a new career, giving a challenged marriage a 333rd chance, or taking on an overwhelming project with limited qualifications. Fear is such a powerful emotion and if fed, it can have lifelong devastating effects.
Fear starts with a suggestion from satan. With one simple suggestion, we begin to doubt God’s power. That doubt grows in our hearts and minds until we become paralyzed in our abilities to walk in our purpose. Has satan told you it’s too late for you to go to school or that you should postpone relocating until certain conditions are met? Has satan tricked you into thinking all marriages fail or that you shouldn’t walk in forgiveness? Has the devil suggested that God can’t fully restore your broken marriage or bless you through conception and childbirth? Has satan suggested a list of reasons why you’re under qualified to finish the project God gave you or why you’re not good enough to start you own business or ministry? The devil is only capable of making suggestions. That’s the only trick he has in his little bag. Our Heavenly Daddy has given us power to cast down all fears by proclaiming His word boldly over our lives. Think about what would happen if each one of us tapped into God’s power, ignored satan’s suggestions and walked in our God given purpose. I don’t know about you, but I believe what God has said about me.
The power of ONE God + Faith filled actions of ONE individual = Victorious results. Sisters, don’t let satan paralyze your purpose. Instead, strengthen your wings and get ready to soar!
