Fear of the Unknown

14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this? ~ Esther 4:14

Sometimes the road that God puts us on looks daunting and impossible. We often look at ourselves from the way the world sees us instead of the way God sees us. David was just a shepherd boy, but God saw a mighty king. Moses was just a man with a speech problem, yet God saw a bold Man of God leading His people. The reason God’s plan for our lives seems so impossible or unrealistic, is because we’re looking at it based on our own strength. Based on our own wisdom.

God’s plan isn’t for us to just do little things but to do great things through us, and many of us miss our opportunities because of fear. Because we don’t feel good enough. But here’s the thing, we don’t have to be good enough because God is enough. We’re not fulfilling our own call based on our own strength and power; we’re fulfilling our own call based on God’s strength and power in us.

Here’s the rough part, if we don’t fulfill our call, God will send someone else to do it. When Moses didn’t want to speak for God, God sent Aaron to speak on His behalf instead of Moses. When Esther was given the chance to save her people from destruction, her uncle, Mordecai, warned if she didn’t do it, someone else would. We miss every single hit we don’t swing at. We can’t allow the fear of the unknown to keep us from doing great and mighty things for God because if we do, He’ll just raise up someone else to do it, and we would’ve missed our blessing.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Fulfill Your Call With God.
