One thing that I'll never forget is something a friend of mine told me a year ago. She said to me, "What is there to fear? You're a kingdom kid!" That is one of the most meaningful things that someone besides God has ever said to me. It's a huge statement of my reality. I don't know what yours is, but my reality is one where the impossible can occur. My reality is one where fear has no place unless I allow it to (which is highly foolish, because I walk with God...I don't walk alone). My reality is one that has no limits.
I mean, how great is that? How great is He who allows me to have such reality. And I know I'm not the only one with this same reality...but I'm one of the few that realizes it and tries to exercise it (I can't fake, it's not always easy tho).
Luke 12:32 says, "Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom," (KJV). As you read God's word and get a grasp for what it means to be a child of God, you realize that we have a hope and expectancy. But many times we let fear get in the way and hold us back. We back down to it and retreat without realizing that we let fear win another battle. Ha! Our helmets are covered with a salvation that reveal who the winner of the war is...so what is a battle??? Think about how much territory we would uncover if we walked fearlessly. How much potential would we claim? Now realize, I'm saying this to myself as well as anyone who reads this. I've definitely lost a trunk full of battles to fear. But I encourage us to not take it no more. And when fear tries to creep in, remember that you are a Kingdom Kid. And to close out...I'll leave us with the way it is put in The Message version.
Luke 12:32- "Don't be afraid of missing out. You're my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself. "
...oh and did I mention that Jesus said this??? Yea, talk about some major ethos right there buddy! lol
