Transformation Today: A Daily Devotional With Victor Adeyemi
Topic: Do It Afraid
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7 (ESV)
To achieve the impossible, you need to be courageous. When there is something great that you want to achieve, the minute you allow fear to take control and you become convinced that you cannot do it, you will not be able to achieve it.
Courage never exists in the absence of fear. Courage rises up in the face of fear. It does what it fears to do. What is that thing you are afraid of doing? Starting a business? Going back to school? Applying for a job? You have to face your fears and do what is that thing you are afraid of doing? Are you afraid to start a new business? To go back to school? To apply for a new job? Whatever it may be, you have to face your fear and do it. Let your faith in God’s unfailing promises stir up courage from within you.
Have faith that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Faith is the way through which you can receive from God. God says you can do it so believe you can do it. If you resist fear, it will flee from you.
I am bold. I am courageous. With God on my side, I can do all things.
