WHAT DOES GOD SEE WHEN YOU OPEN UP YOUR GIFT PACKAGES IN LIFE?
YOUR BOLDNESS OR YOUR FEAR?
Only Joshua and Caleb used their faith as they approached the new space in the Promise Land. The other ten spies were driven with fear as they saw the giants in the land. If you are to move ahead with the gifts that God has given you, you must approach your serving with, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.”
Fear leads to hesitation, which leads to a pause, which leads to a direct “NO” to God’s leading and direction. That is why the ten spies said, “We are not able to go in and possess the land.” Their decision ultimately led two million people to wander in the wilderness for 40 years. Only the young generation went into the new land and those 20 and older died in the wilderness.
It was Joshua and Caleb’s bold faith and tenacity that said, “We are more than able to go in and possess the land. Let us go up at once.”
What is it that God is leading you to do? Has he placed something in your heart that bigger than what you are? Have you said, “I don’t have the talents, resources, gifting, favor, or the knowhow?” It’s when the dream is bigger than what you are that God can step in and do His part.
When we were building our first buildings on our property here at I-295 and North Main Street in Jacksonville Fl, I said, “God why didn’t you call somebody that knew what they were doing? Don’t you know I’m too young to do something like this?” God said, “Danny, I choose the weak things of the earth to confound the wise.” Friend, when you let him use your weakness, that’s when He gets “ALL the Glory.” Are you ready to be driven with Boldness instead of Fear? When you do, you will see God do wonderful, glorious things.
