I remember this time in my life. I was on fire for Christ! I was newly aware of some gifts God had deposited in my lineage. All I knew is that I just wanted MORE! I wanted to say what He said to say, go where He said to go, do what He said to do, and be absolutely FEARLESS while doing so.  I remember crying out, “Lord make us fearless!”  I even put it on my prayer board. Hubby and I continued to put it before the Lord, “Make us Fearless Lord! Make us Fearless!” As if God would just endow us with this super power all of a sudden. Then, we could put “it” on like a jacket. Now, a few years later, I consider the weight of my words as I reread this prayer request.  Exactly what would have to happen in order for a person to become fearless? What types of experiences were entailed in this process? I would imagine that one would have to be put in a position in which they actually faced fear! Not just one or two times either. A task this monumental would require some real practice, right? Time after time again a person would have to be put in a position in which they faced fear in order to become confident in facing said fear. How does one become confident in facing fear? I’m glad you asked! As believers we need to become established in the position that God is Sovereign. We must come to a point where we are rock solid in the fact that God is in control! How many times would one have to face a situation in order to become settled in the fact that God is in control? I have given this a substantial amount of consideration as of late. The last few years have been strenuous, but have truly stretched my faith muscles! Fear came in the form of marital problems. Fear hid in every nook and cranny, telling me that we weren’t going to make it, but divorce is not an option!  Fear came in the form of job issues. I left a job of 14 years right in the middle of purchasing our very first home. Friends, associates, even hubby thought I was crazy, but I knew what God had told me. Fear reared its ugly head when it was time to transition out of the only church-home I had known for 17 years. We were told that, “This is not of God,” but once again, we knew what God had spoken. So, we chose to believe the word of the Lord over EVERYONE. It’s a pretty scary place to find yourself alone simply because people don’t share your beliefs. Recently, I was released from my job of nearly three years. For the first time in about 25 years, I am unemployed. Hubby has been tremendously supportive-in every sense of the word. I mean, let’s keep it real ya’ll- WE GOT BILLS! Fear is doing its same sad and tired song and dance of “You won’t make it!” Well in the words of Maury, “the lie detector results have determined THAT IS A LIE!” There has been transition after transition. We have endured process after process.  There have been time and situation and time again where we were faced with fear and fear and MORE fear. Only to come to the realization that God’s word is true. God is faithful! He has promised to provide all of our needs according to his riches in glory by Jesus Christ. God is Sovereign! God is in control.  Faith>fear. That is how you become Fearless- through the PROCESS! Revelation of the following resides in me; that I walk in favor, that I walk in His authority, that He says FEAR NOT! I almost want to say be careful what you ask for, but at the same time, had we NOT asked, we would not have been put in various positions dire enough to make a strong man’s knees buckle! We would not have been put in a position to progress in order to become exactly what we, in our naivety, had asked- FEARLESS!
