As we consider the uncertainties of the future, we are confronted with a powerful temptation: the temptation to “play it safe.” Unwilling to move mountains, we fret over molehills. Unwilling to entertain great hopes for tomorrow, we focus on the unfairness of today. Unwilling to trust God completely, we take timid half-steps when God intends that we make giant leaps.
Today, ask God for the courage to step beyond the boundaries of your doubts. Ask Him to guide you to a place where you can realize your full potential – a place where you are freed from the fear of failure. Ask Him to do His part and commit to doing your part. Don’t ask Him to lead you to a “safe” place; ask Him to lead you to the “right” place. Remember, those two places are seldom the same.
