Life to the Full
When we let fear run our lives, we close ourselves off from anything that might hurt us or cost us or make us uncomfortable, including opportunities to serve God and walk in His promises.
God calls us to serve with what we have and with who we are, but if we don’t lean into Him and overcome our fears, then we won’t fulfill what He’s called us to do. We won’t touch the people we’re destined to influence.
Jesus warned us, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.” Fear is a thief like that. It can cause us to hold back and run away from the very assignments God has designed just for us. But if we’ll trust, if we’ll lean into Jesus, if we’ll keep our eyes on Him, we can rest in what He promised: “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
