For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise from the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion? - Esther 4:14 "Fear brings a lack of confidence in God and in you. It is a destructive, debilitating belief that "you can't." "
I fear of being in debt forever (student loans, car payments, etc.)
I fear I will fail at something I start so sometimes I never start at all.
We don't naturally make the connection that fear is what debilitates us. I've been catching myself whenever I say or think "I want to.." I stop and think "Why don't you?" Then "Alright, done. I'm on the path."
If you aren't on the path to succeeding your goals, pave the way for yourself and get the necessary tools. Surround yourself with the right people who will be supportive of your journey. Some people will try to drown you out with their negativity but #aintnobodygottimeforthat !!!
Lord, not only is a lack of confidence bad for me, it is an insult to You. I pray that You will change my actions and my language. I know that with You anything is possible. Amen.
