What Are You Afraid Of?

Has God ever told you to do something and you let intimidation get in the way?

In Exodus 3:10, God told Moses "So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out Egypt." Moses replied in verse 11, "Who am I, that I should go..?" Moses had the spirit of intimidation. When you feel worthless, you feel valueless and sometimes despicable. Moses told God again in Exodus 4:10-13 how useless he felt.

Fear and intimidation will hinder your walk with God.

When God imparts upon your heart to do something, He will be patient up to a point with you. After that, His patience runs thin. If you're not willing to do what God asks, He will find someone else to do it. Moses wasn't willing so God tapped Aaron to do it and replaced Moses.

What Moses wasn't willing to accept was that God would do the talking for him (I hear you God, but I'm not listening to you!).  God does not use people who know how to minister and preach because that is the ministry of man. Those who have the ministry of the spirit, God uses.

The devil has done his homework on you. Although you may not turn your back on God, he will still try to immobilize you to where you feel powerless. If you are fearful or intimidated by what God is calling you to do, you'll never move in faith. It's time to move forward in victory in Jesus name!

Thank you, Barbie. I just asked God to send me a "flaming bush" this morning in my prayer over something that has been heavy on my heart, and.... well, I think this could be it...... I certainly needed this.
