Come on, Are you chicken? (You really might be a warrior!)
When I was a kid, my brothers and I were always into name-calling. It was never really “bad” words or “curse” words but we could sure do a number on each other with calling each other names. Calling each other chicken was a normal thing around there. If you wanted someone to do something, all you had to do was to tell them they were “chicken” and they would set out to prove that they weren’t scared.
Here’s a question I have for you…”Are you chicken?”
Are you afraid to step out and do things because you are afraid of what someone might think about you?
Are you expecting rejection at every turn and the fear paralyzes you to the point that you don’t do anything?
Are you afraid of failing or falling and someone will make fun of you?
Here’s what I know. I have said “yes!” to every one of those questions and it hasn’t been that long ago. Just because we grow up and become adults doesn’t mean that we aren’t still living in fear. So, let’s take this fear under subjection and apply some Jesus to it!
Fear and Faith cannot abide together. You have to change your mind and your belief. Jesus is stronger than every doubt, fear, or demon that wants to get you to listen to him.
Believe Jesus when he tells you that you can do anything, be anything, and have an abundant life. Abundance doesn’t come out of fear. Abundance comes from God through his son, Jesus.
Jesus said in John 10:10 that the thief comes to kill, steal, and destroy but that He (Jesus) came that you might have life and have it more abundantly.
So…what’s it going to be for you today? Is it faith or fear? Is it light or darkness? Are you going to be a CHICKEN or a WARRIOR?
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind, every day! Focus on who the Lord says you are instead of what the world or the enemy has to say.
You are greatly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved! Go out and tell somebody when they ask you, “How are you today?”….Just say I am Blessed. 🙂
