It is time to stop running.
You can’t become all you were created to be by staying comfortable. Don’t run from things that are hard. Don’t shrink back because you don’t want to put forth the effort. It’s uncomfortable to get honest and deal with your temper.
It’s uncomfortable to forgive someone that hurt you. It’s uncomfortable to say, “I need help with this addiction; I’m going to deal with this bad habit.” Gideon stopped running, he faced his fears, confronted his insecurity, and he became one of the heroes of faith.
Here’s a key, God will never ask you to do a hard thing and not give you the ability to do it.
When He’s asking you to do something difficult, the grace is there, but you have to step into it. Your mind will tell you, “You can’t forgive; they hurt you too badly. You’ll never break this addiction; just live with it.
You can’t do something great; you’re insecure and unqualified.” Don’t believe those lies. There’s nothing the enemy would love more than for you to spend your life running: running from God’s call on your life, running from your fears, running from your hurts, running from your past.
It’s time to stop running. The only way out is through. You can’t go around it. You can’t ignore it thinking it will go away. Time won’t cause it to disappear. But if you’ll confront it, you can conquer it.
Romans 8 verse 37 says, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”
God’s promises to you will not fail. Don’t back down now, press in and push it through by prayer, in the name of Jesus. – Joel Osteen.
“Stop running away from your problems, because that only increases the distance from the solution. Make it right today, tomorrow is too late.” author unknown.
