a new project before you..
When we have a dream in our heart, it just doesn't appear there out of nowhere, it was placed there by God. He inspires us, He sets before us projects that are not always easy, but they are to bring glory and honor to Him. We when take on something new it is scary at first, and we can feel overwhelmed at all the new things infront of us. We need to step back, take a breath, focus on Him, and pray for Him to lead you, to give you the desire to press forward, and clear our minds of all that doesn't need to be there and the designs will begin to come. The project will take on a whole new meaning with whole new ideas. God can bring it to life, He can breathe His will into it, and set it on its course just like a sailboat needs wind, our projects need Christ to bring them to the forefront. When we let our fears go, when we can step back from seeing how hard it is, and stop letting satan in to tell us its never going to happen we will be set free to grow, to learn and to be blessed by God. It is amazing to begin a new business, all seems too big to be real, but nothing is bigger than our God. When he gives us small things to do for His kingdom and we follow His will He will give us bigger things to take on. Don't be like Jonah and be afraid to take the trip. Open your ears and eyes, and allow God to speak to you, allow Him to show you the wonder before you. When we are blessed with a talent just who do you think placed that in us? God did, and He doesn't come up with bad ideas, or things that won't work. He gives us wonderful things to accomplish for Him. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 Nothing is impossible with God on our side and living in us. If you will not stand up and be used of God, He will move on to someone who will. What better way to worship God than to do His will and way. When we are fearful of failure we need to tell satan to get behind us, and look to Christ for strength. Whenever we are living for Christ, or beginning a new project for His glory satan is going to attack, and try with all his might to get into our heads. We must not allow him to get in the way of God's will in our life. What is holding you back from moving forward? Your fears honey. Put them aside, but them behind you, and go forward with God. The only thing free, and easy is asking Christ into our hearts. Anything else in life worth having takes effort and takes hard work combined with a heart for Christ. "And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19 For you my friend who is just starting out on your new adventure, put your fears aside, and watch God move through you, and when He does give Him all the glory He deserves and praise Him through all that touches you!
