Ecclesiastes talks about a season of change; that there is a time for everything. I sense and know a season of change is coming in my life. Change brings about uncertainty and can cause fear of the unknown. Fear, oh how that cripples our lives, keeps us from trying, taunts us daily and continually makes us doubt ourselves. Fear torments us and then prevents us from God's destiny.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Well as a famous and well respected Bible teacher always says; "then do it afraid". "Do not fear" is listed in the Bible 365 times, one for everyday! Do not fear does not mean that your heart won't pound, your hands won't sweat and you won't feel queasy inside, it means do not runaway!!
So what are you running from?
