It probably started the first time you stepped out and tried something you’ve never done before. Like standing up in the spot light but tripping on your way up, or taking the less popular stance only to get pelted by public opinion. Maybe it started when you tried doing the hard thing you’ve dreamt of doing but your first, second or 10th attempt failed. Hard things are hard. Scary hard.
the lie: I shouldn’t try, I’ll just fail, It isn’t worth the fall-out.
Truthfully, wouldn’t it be just like our enemy to do his very best to keep you on the sidelines, or better, left back in the locker room? He’s a punk and will cheat his way for a victory. The lie that says “you can’t do that hard thing” is his ploy to take you out so you can’t have the impact God intended. Friend, Stand UP! YOU CAN DO THE HARD THINGS IN FRONT OF YOU! I promise, grab His truth and GO!
You will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy. Colossians 1:11
