In today’s daily bible study, we will discuss a bible nugget titled, “Face your fears, take the challenge.”
We shall begin by discussing a passage from the bible
As God sent Moses on the mission, to bring the Israelites out of Egypt, He gave Moses a blessed assurance of success.
God said; when you must have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship me on this mountain. Moses however, seemed not interested in the mission. Moses tried convincing God to send someone else. In all his excuses, Moses was unable to exempt himself from the task. He eventually embarked on the journey.
Why did Moses try dodging embarking on such a mission? Well, such a task is going to be a very challenging one. Walking up to the king of the most powerful empire and asking him to free his slaves is not a simple task to undertake.
In his initial response to God in Exodus chapter 3 verse 11, Moses said, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt.”
God Himself knows that it was not going to be an easy task; God told Moses saying; “I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless a mighty hand compels him.“
This very passage of the bible teaches us a powerful message, and that is, “the journey to success and freedom is tough and full of challenges. But when we face our fears, we can summon the courage to move on and take the challenge.
Once Moses remembered that God had promised he will bring the children of Israel to the very mountain they encountered, he had to face his fears and take the challenge.
If you want freedom, then get ready to face your fears and take the challenge ahead.
Face your fears, take the challenge and be free
If you really want to achieve success in life and make a better living, then you will have to face your fears, those fears that hinder you from taking the challenge that will transform your life for good.
Child of God, you need to understand that nothing in life comes easy, God allows us to pass through challenges in life, to enable us grow, and to make us strong. It is an easy task for God to liberate the Israelites from the hands of Pharoah without having to subject Moses to such a difficult mission of confronting Pharoah, however, God wanted to teach the Israelites a vital lesson about freedom. Freedom comes with struggle and effort.
No matter the area of your life that you seek freedom, you need to be prepared to face your fears and take the challenge ahead. If you want to have financial freedom, then get ready to face the fears of taking risks, get ready to take the challenge of working late nights. If you wish to break the yoke of ignorance in your life, get ready to take the challenge of reading a lot of books, get ready to read and study.
freedom doesn’t come free; it comes with great struggle and effort. You need to get out of your comfort zone and delve into the world of the unknown., that is what the quest for freedom entails.
This was the lesson God was trying to teach Moses; you have to face your fears and take the challenge to gain your freedom. One thing is assured, as long as God is with you, you will surely emerge victorious, however, you have to make that bold step. Face your fears and take the challenge, that is the sure way to any freedom.
As a child of God, you need to understand that trials and tribulations will surely come; when they come, you need to remember who is with you. God is with you.
In Isaiah 43 verse 2, God says: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, and the flame will not scorch you.
These are words of assurance from a God who never fails. So, next time you encounter any challenge in your life, be it sickness, lack, sorrow, loss, etc., weep not, summon courage and face the challenge, you will surely emerge victorious
May God almighty always give you the strength to pick courage amid adversity and forge ahead till you reach your success destination, Amen.
