When he captured God’s dream for him for the year, little did he know that it was something that would come so fast. According to him; “Sir, all the dreams and plans I have for the year have been fulfilled within these past couple of weeks. I have to dream more.” The young man was shocked that his big dreams were not within reach. They were valid.

Friend, you need to be audacious about your God given dreams and destiny. The truth is, your fear is also afraid of you. If only you knew how much the devil fears you, you would act courageous (1 Samuel 4:7-8). When you act boldly, unseen forces will act in your favour. Courage is not the absence of fear but the conquest of it (Numbers 13:30). Don’t follow your fear or your feeling, follow your faith (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Take Holy Spirit inspired risk. When you take risk in God, you are actually taking rest. Signs only follow those who make moves (Mark 16:17). God’s power works best in the lives of those who take steps. The four lepers took steps and God amplified the sound of their weak feet (2 Kings 7:3-6). What will you give God to amplify and multiply this season? What will you do that will commit God to work for you?

You are too helped to be stranded (Isaiah 50:7). Start that business even though you are afraid. Step into that full time ministry even when you don’t know how things will work out. Apply for another job even if you have just lost your job or suffered some disappointments. Make that phone call. Schedule that visit. Apply for that scholarship. Start that building project. Make that request. Apply for that funding for your business.

Nothing moves until you move. When you move, unseen forces both in heaven and on earth begin to work in your favour and direction. Don’t let fear cripple your dreams. Don’t let people’s opinion stop you from stepping into your destiny. Don’t let the failure of the past keep you from tapping into the possibilities of the future (Isaiah 43:18-19). Don’t let the worst that the devil has done in your past to keep you from the best that God is doing in your present and in your future.

God’s power is available at your disposal, you cannot be helpless (Ephesians 3:20). God’s integrity is at stake in your life, you will not be disappointed. Divine Destiny is on the line, you cannot die a mediocre. Grace is at work in you and through you, you cannot be disgraced. What is that one thing you would do this season if failure is not an option?
