So It Has Begun
So It Has Begun
As I prepare for the official launch of my website, and its proper introduction to the world, the thoughts began to come. I'd ask myself, are you really about to do this, then ponder on the question as if I can actually come up with a logical explanation not to. I'd hear thoughts encouraging me to wait, procrastinate a while longer, work on it some more, does it look nice?, is the backgroud to dark?, what purpose will it serve?; And before I can even grasp what it is I'm doing, there it is, a road block has been formed in my mind, and fear begins to creep in. Now, some of you may think that's a normal response and you are absolutely right, but I know that isn't a Kingdom response. I understand that fear is not an attribute given to me by my heavenly Father. The word of God tells us, in 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV, "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.", and this tells me that at anytime fear attempts to creep in my heart that it has come from the enemy. Fear of Failure, Fear of Rejection, Fear of People, are crippling attributes set in place by the enemy to prevent you from fulfilling what it is you are called to do. The only way to overcome bouts with the enemy is with the word of God. Honor the word God has given you regarding anything he has commissioned you to do, receive the manifestation of the word, and protect it with your faith. As I encourage you I encourage myself. I make a choice today to honor the word God has given me, and complete that which He has purposed in my heart. I further submit any negative thoughts to my heavenly Father (2 Corinthians 10:5), and rise to the occasion at hand. So it has begun!!
