Friday, 12 July 2019 (We’re at the half way mark – No wonder the endurance week is in the middle, it weeds out attributes that make us want to apply the brakes when we should have our foot on the gas.)
- The position of our endurance
Our individuality must identify with its position as an equal to fellow humans, otherwise characters of self imposed empowerment can occur. On the other hand, if we position ourselves as not good enough then victories will always be elusive.
Anxiousness is a breeding ground for fear.
I had a video I was going to post, then decided not to. However, I will quickly share the content:
I was at the sale barn (cattle auction) and you could hear all of the cattle in the back ground mooing at each other. See, they had found themselves in an unexpected position and became anxious. We are not cows, however there are times when our positions are abruptly uprooted and we find ourselves in unfamiliar territory. If our characters in humbled determination are not clearly defined then we will attach unnecessary fear to our inner core.
Fears in our inner core are eradicated when we place our full trust in God.
I usually do not do this but was strongly beckoned to blog the scriptures that apply to this character:
Php 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Php 4:5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand;
Php 4:6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving (HUMILITY/GRATITUDE) let your requests be made known to God.
Php 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (ESV translation)
Fear defeats our endurance. Fear places too many hurdles on your race track. Fear is NOT OF GOD.
- Can my characters in humility survive an emergency crisis?
Challenge: NO HASTY MOVES TODAY!!! If you’re feeling anxious…..calm down, take a deep breath and evaluate your position in life’s marathon.
Humility fosters Victory
