"I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them." 1 Timothy 2:1 (NLT)

God has packed us with what it takes to move forward and do whatever he has called us to do. Moses was called by God to deliver His people, Moses said "I cant, I wouldn't know how, I am clumsy with my mouth and i am slow with my speaking." In exodus 4:12 "I made your mind and mouth, I will teach u and give u the words to speak, now go". Maybe its not you moving forward physically but its mentally, you need to move forward is by having the proper mindset. A mindset of faith and confidence in ourselves that we are able and equipped. A spirit of fear must be broken and dismissed as the enemy trying to cripple us; keeping us from Gods very best in our lives. Jeremiah 1:5, Gal 1:15, Paul knew he was given what God called him to be.....we already have what we need to fulfill what god has called us to be...we just have to mature and develop what we have been already given. We have to unpack our bags with confidence and know that we can exchange out fears for confidence that will bring out qualities we didn't know we had...the scripture says that the trial of faith will be out strengths. The pressure you are facing is not going to break you, its only going strengthen you. We have to remember that God has fully equipped us and in Phil 4:13 "I can through god all things are possible ". Jesus said "I am the vine and you are the branches " we are the most happy and most confident when we are fulfilling our God given potential, take your step of faith and go. Don't let fear hold you back. Know that God has fully equipped you and if you step out God will teach you and give you what it takes. The His Word says when you are weak he is strong, when we walk with God we are able to do amazing things. No matter what obstacles is in front of you God will equip you when you can't, keep pushing forward and take that step of faith. Know that God is a good God and he equipped you!
Put God's Word into action, Job 22:27-28," 27You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows. 28 What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways." We need to get the mind of the spirit, don't just throw words out in a prayer. The Word says in Jude 20, "building yourself up, on your most holy faith, praying in the holy spirit." The Holy Spirit reveals to us the Word we "decide to pray", which will give us what we want, Victory in Jesus!
Thank You, Father for this Word and the mindset to understand it and an open heart to receive it. Through the Holy Spirit help us to continue this mindset of the spirit and to develop the proper maturity to do Your will in our lives. Father God, place the Your words upon our tongues to speak Your Word and Wisdom to believers and to non- believers, to bring better understanding to everyone with compassion, with Your patience and love to bring others closer to You or to You. In His Holy Name Christ Jesus, I pray, Amen!
