Battle · Call · Fear · New · Trust · Victory

new year… and more…

Anticipating the new year… with more than a new word

New endeavors on the horizon… give the enemy a platform to stir up fear…

Fear of failure…

Fear of success… (don’t laugh…)

Fear of not knowing what I’m doing…

Fear of the unknown…

The new before me… I believe… hope… is because of His leading… His calling…

But the voice of fear… makes one doubt…

My heart echoes Moses’s objections… regarding his call…

“Who am I that I should go…?” (Exodus 3:11)

“But behold, they will not believe me or listen to my voice…” (Exodus 4:1)

“Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” (Exodus 4:10)

So I battle to believe… to trust what I hear… and Who I know…

Then I consider the word He gave for the year…

Restore

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Psalm 51:12 NIV

The Hebrew translated as salvation… also means… deliverancerescuesafetywelfareprosperity… and… victory… (Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon)

I’m reminded… to do anything He calls us to do… requires a firm understanding… that it is His salvation… His deliverance… His victory… on which we are to depend…!

Restore to me… O Lord… the joy… of Your victory… which is already won…

Bless me… with a willing spirit to sustain me…

Apart from You… and the reality of Your power… I can do nothing…

Thankful for the new word… to face the new… of the new year…

I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him.

Psalm 62:1 NLT

Amen…
