Worst case scenario – Beat that bully
LeadershipLeave a comment

Ester 4:16

Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast for me; and neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. I also and my maids will fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law; and if I perish, I perish. (Esther 4:16 AMP)

We will never really see the power of God in its full effect if we do not take action on the Word of God which is the seed for experiencing the power of God. The providence of God is acted out when you act!

One key reason we often don’t act on the word is the fear of failing. I know I struggle with that one! I hate failing so much that on many occasions I didn’t try. What if it goes wrong? What if it doesn’t work? What if I make a fool of myself? What if I mess it all up?

I have come to realise that if we will see the manifestation of what God says we can become, we will need to come to the place where you say if I PERISH, I PERISH! We would need to come to the place where the we look the worst case scenario in the eye, and choose to defy it!

The worst case scenario is like a bully. It stares you down on the play ground of life. It taunts you and challenges your courageous advances. But once you choose to look the worst case scenario in the eye and authentically communicate to it that you are no longer afraid of what happens if “it” happen – IF I PERISH, I PERISH – you will be free from that bully. And equipped to truly act on that Word!

Hey, what do you want? The life you have now or the life you are dreaming of? Action is the vehicle that transports you from where you are to where you want to be. Act now! Every time you procrastinate on taking an action because of some area of uncertainty, what you are choose your current location over what I see in my dreams!

The best thing about action for the believer is that it is not by power or by might but by the Spirit of God! God’s Spirit will support you incredibly every time you act on Gods Word!

PUT ON YOUR FIGHTING FACE!

(MY FIGHTING FACE!)

People who train you in health and safety often advice that before you lift a load, you need to first evaluate the load to see if you can lift it by yourself or if you need help. In life we always face various situations in which we are consciously or unconsciously evaluating what we face and trying to make a decision on whether we are able to tackle the situation by our strength or if we will need help.

Fear sets in when upon evaluation of the load that HAS to move, you find that you don’t have strength equal to the task ahead. This is where you still need a job, but feel you can’t stand another rejection! You still need to be made well, but you can’t stand hoping for a better report this time. You still want a good relationship, but you don’t have the strength to be vulnerable enough to trust again. You want a first class degree but you can’t stand the possibility of failing your exams.

At this point, you can either step sideways or backwards onto another load that you feel your strength can handle, or you step up to the task ahead of you in spite of the disparity between your strength and the strength of what you face. I recommend the later, because the former is a GUARANTEED PATH TO MEDIOCRITY! I recommend you put on your fighting face…not the cute one…the ugly one that comes by default when you mean business…Yeah that one…put it on and step up to the plate!

I believe in God. If you are willing to consider that He is God, He has made some pretty awesome promises to be your helper. He even backed this promise up with a covenant! Check out the following passages from the bible:

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. (Isaiah 40:28, 29 NKJV)

Not only is He the God who gives you strength when you are weakened by what you face, He has also promised to always be with you ; Hebrews 13:5 – Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Today, you can step up to the plate, put on your fighting face and say BOLDLY “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6 NKJV)

STEP UP! WITH GOD, THERE IS NOTHING MEDIOCRE ABOUT YOU. WALK TOWARDS THAT THING KNOWING THAT THE LORD IS YOUR HELLPER!
