There are many times I have experienced the fear, dread, and anxiety that often intercepts a particular task or assignment I know is important.
Often, I have felt the heavy, choking personal weight and loneliness of defeat even before having even begun.
Have you ever wrestled with such insecurities and darkness?
How silly …to *think* you can not do something you actually can.
I absolutely love and value how the Lord speaks encouraging words to Joshua concerning these feelings.
The Lord reminds Joshua of his assignment….the thing Joshua is supposed to do AND tells him to do it with confidence, encouraging him in his spirit, soul, and body with repeated words of assurance. Be Strong and brave …as I was with your forefathers, I will be with you. Don’t be afraid because I (the Lord) will be with you everywhere you go. I will not leave. I will not fail you.
In 2002, after engaging in a powerful workbook and devotional by John Bevere entitled Driven by Eternity, I realized I was going to stand before the creator and give an account of my life including the gifts, talents, and dreams he had placed within me.
Was I doing anything about these awesome things, or was I turning my back on them? Has I dropped them to the ground because of fear and uncertainty? My excuse bag was full.
Stopping to reflect on my individual responsibility to follow thru with a higher demand and eternal calling, I realized I need to make some inner personal changes, which I will go into further detail later.
A very clear voice spoke to me about my assignment drawing it from the depths of my spirit.
In 1993, God gave me a vision of a mountain. I climbed half way up the mountain which was easy and comfortable for the most part. I found some level ground and a whole bunch of people who had decided camp out. An entire community seemed to have been established half way up the mountain. …lots of fun and rest.
However, as comfortable and welcoming as that camp was. I knew I was to go to the top and as I looked at everyone who had climbed half way it seemed no one was interested in coming with me. I knew I had to climb alone.
