I have acrophobia, the fear of heights. But I wonder if I have that fear spiritually too.
I’ve heard many times that God can use me, He wants to use me. Then I read wonderful devotionals, replete with stories of God working in the lives of saints living today. I think, “I can never do that.” Because I’m afraid or don’t believe in myself I don’t try. But that sort of thinking limits God.
12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
1 Peter 2:9
9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
It’s a command. God expects to use us. Relax and let God take over. Remember, it is God doing the work. You have nothing to fear. Go reach new heights for God.
