I rebuke the spirit of fear!
Why is it that every time I turn around, I get so afraid to step out and walk in the fullness of my calling!!? So many gifts, talents and abilities, but we constantly suppress them like there's gonna be another chance someday! What if there's not? The time is now and it waits for no man! God wants to use us and He wants to show us even more jewels that have been lying dormant inside of us....
But - if we keep hiding behind others.. we're never going to feel fulfilled.. and we're probably never going to complete our full purpose, either! We need to trust that if we feel God tugging at us to do something, that He's already equipped us and is going to help us every step of the way. (Hebrews 13:20-21) Even if it's a bit uncomfortable at first..
Sometimes God gives us big shoes to fill and they don't look or feel like they fit at first. They could look like ginormous clown shoes when we first see them, but that's why we have to feed ourselves on Him and depend on His word and Spirit so that we can grow into them and start walkin... 😏🐾👣
So right now, in the name of Jesus, I come against the spirit of fear! I pray that every assignment to destroy our motivation, self worth, self esteem, confidence, trust in the Word and in the promises of God is CANCELLED! I even pray that we would never be intimidated by anyone else's gifts, either! We ARE good enough! You've made us uniquely and brought us here into this world for such a time as this!! (Esther 4:14) We are ALL necessary!! (1 Cor 12:14-21)
I pray that we would also never condemn ourselves for any wrong that we've done! I pray that no condemnation of any nature would hold us back from pursuing You and the assignments that You have given us to complete while on this Earth! I rebuke the spirits of guilt and shame and I thank You for forgiveness! I pray that we would all receive Your forgiveness, God, and that we would walk boldly knowing that we have been made right with You by our faith in Jesus! (Rom 3:22) I loose the Spirit of boldness to fall over us completely so that we will not be ashamed of ourselves OR of You! I pray that we will go out to the world and tell them about You and that we will do this withholding nothing, completely surrendered and all!
I thank You for healing us and putting back together any broken pieces inside of us from the lies of the enemy that made it into our ears and hearts! We are not our mistakes! We are good enough! We are called! We are chosen! We have purpose! We are equipped and we WILL accomplish the assignments that You have given us by Your grace and Spirit!!
I thank You for giving us wisdom in every area of the assignments that You've placed upon us and I pray that we will seek to hear You and choose to follow You, never leaving Your side.
We love You, God and we thank You!! In Jesus' name I pray! Amen!" 🙌
