The Confident Woman Devotional – When You Feel Afraid (Pt. 2)

Confidence

When You Feel Afraid

The devotional reads:

Just because ordinary people take steps to accomplish extraordinary things does not mean that they do not feel fear. I believe the Old Testament hero Esther felt fear when she was asked to leave her familiar, comfortable life and enter the king’s harem so she could be used by God to save her nation. I believe Joshua felt fear when, after Moses died, he was given the job of taking the Israelites into the Promised Land.

Pray:

Lord, thank You for the many examples in Your Word of individuals who stepped forward in faith despite their fears. Help me to do the same. Amen.

Scripture:

Ezra 3:3-4. We must remember that women are a precious gift from God to the world. We are creative, compassionate, intelligent, and with purpose.

Here’s what I have to say —

We cannot be afraid to do the will of God. We cannot be afraid to do what He has called us to do. I was told that being nervous about doing things for God (e.g. preaching) was a good sign because it meant that you were genuinely ministering for God and not just doing it for your own personal gain. I can honestly say that I agree with that statement — because it is not about us anyway. We’re just the vessels.
