Faith is not the opposite of fear.
Courage is not the opposite of fear.
There is only one thing that trumps fear, every time, all time, bigger, better, faster, more powerful.
Have you ever wondered in your prayer and petition for the miraculous, whether or not you’re big enough to contain the blessing you’re asking for? Heaven’s silver platter provision comes not without a demand for stewardship.
When I finally gave away worldly dating and prayed for a Godly man, God was faithful. I became quickly aware that to steward this blessing meant I would have to fight. Fight for purity, fight for honour, fight for submission. Almost two decades later I am still in a fight for my marriage.
When they told me I would not be able to have children, my 19-year-old self cried out to God for healing, and He was faithful – miraculously faithful. Now with four children in my care I have realised that this is perhaps the biggest fight of all time – a fight for their moral integrity, a fight for their character, a fight for the Spiritual reality around their everyday experiences.
Yes! There are Heavenly silver platter deliveries granted us, but not without a call to stewardship and arms. Often, that fight is fearsome, riddled with question and clouded by doubt.
