Fear stops purpose

Before creation, God had a plan for your life. The same thing that he said to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5 he says to us, “Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you…”(MSG). Before I go further on purpose, I want to address the elephant in the room: Purpose Blockers. Purpose Blockers are negative emotions, insecurities, and excuses that lead us down less productive, less fulfilling roads on our purpose journey. These distractions stop you from achieving your purpose, and if you don’t face them head-on, you may shy away from what you are to confront and overcome. 

There are things that can block your Purpose : one is Fear 

Trust God even when you can’t see him, they would be able to overcome some of their fears. You were created for a unique destiny that aligns with your unique identity. In other words, you’re different because you’re called to contribute something different to this world; we all are! But you won’t accomplish your destiny if you don’t embrace your unique identity, and this will take faith. Faith cancels fear. Some people think faith means simply following their gut instinct, but if you are a believer that “gut instinct” is the Holy Spirit leading you! 

Queen Esther (Esther 4:12-14) was afraid of going into the King’s presence to ask him to spare the lives of her people. And let’s be clear, Esther had a right to be afraid. Death was the penalty for approaching the King if he had not summoned you. 

What, or who, has you so fearful you can’t move on the things you know God has called you to do? 


Father, help me to remember that you did not give me a spirit of fear. You gave me a sound mind, power, and self-discipline. And because of your spirit, I can do all things through you. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

In our home and others homes with family and friends (small groups), teaching videos, and meetings. Where we are invited to share. Colossians 2:6-7 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
