The Lord spoke to me in a time of prayer recently and His voice was so clear and plain. He said, “Live unafraid.” As I kept praying, the Lord began to give me a download about this word. I believe that in this season, God is calling His people to live unafraid. Many have an unfulfilled destiny, promises that have yet to come to pass, and prophetic words that seem to be lying dormant. However, I believe that if we will each stand on His word and live in faith instead of fear then we will see every single thing that God has for us fully manifested.
As I prayed into this word from the Lord, I could sense that there are many that are right on the verge of key breakthroughs in their lives but fear was holding them back. Insecurity and fear will keep you from becoming who God has truly called you to be. When our emotions are out of line then we operate out of character and Godly character is not formed in us. Do not let fear or insecurity keep you bound or out of your promises! Now is the time to live unafraid!
Psalm 4:8 in the Passion Translation says, “Now, because of you, Lord, I will lie down in peace and sleep comes at once, for no matter what happens, I will live unafraid!” We have all experienced nights where fear or worry has robbed us of sleep. However, this verse makes it clear that this is not what God wants for us. The Lord is calling you into His peace that surpasses all understanding that will even cause you to rest so that you can wake up every morning ready to live unafraid.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” My friends, you will never be able to move forward with God unless you believe that what is coming up in your life is good. We must believe that what God purposed for us and planned for our lives is to prosper us, not to harm us or discourage us.
The Lord has bigger dreams for your life than even you do! It is time for you to dream fearlessly with God and tap into the breathtaking plans He has for you. More than anything else, the Lord wants to bless you with the love, joy, and peace that only comes from flowing in His Spirit. This is your season to prosper. This is your season to catch God’s vision for your life and run fearlessly after it.
In this season, do not get weary in well doing because you will reap if you do not give up or give in. Don’t be afraid of trials, tests, and tribulations. The Lord will use what the enemy meant for evil and turn it around for your good and to grow you. When you are righteous before the Lord you operate in His grace that empowers you to thrive in any circumstance. The grace that God has anointed you with will also cause your gifts, talents, and abilities He has given to you to flow. It is that same grace of God that is calling you to live unafraid. This needs to be your declaration for the next few months. Let this be a season where you just go for everything that God has for you without fear! It is time for you to live unafraid!
