A few months ago, my pastor taught on the scripture Mark 11:24 which states, “Therefore I tell you whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Immediately after hearing this word, I began praying for one thing in particular and I believed that God was going to give me the desires of my heart. I prayed and waited. I trusted God when everything seemed to be going right. And I even trusted Him in the times it seemed like I wasn’t going to get what I had been asking for. I was keeping the faith and believing that God was going to answer my prayers.
My prayers weren’t answered when I thought they would be but finally the moment came. God was showing me that He was answering my prayer. But then, I got nervous. I stumbled upon fear telling me I couldn’t really handle this assignment. And doubt slapped me in the face telling me I wasn’t qualified for what I was asking for. And insecurities knocked the wind out of me and said if you were good enough in the first place then you wouldn’t have had to go through all of this to get what you've been asking for. And for a moment I was stuck because I wasn’t so sure if I wanted what I had been praying for anymore.
If the enemy can get you to think you’ve got cold feet, he will keep you frozen in your current position and thinking that you can’t move forward to obtain purpose, destiny, and the blessings that God has in store for you. Don’t stop, and don’t retreat. Keep going and get what God has in store for you!
