Day 256 - Embracing Change: Overcoming Fear as an Obstacle to Growth in Your Spiritual Life

Finding Your Creative Bones® 365-Day Devotional © 2023

Be open to change and eliminate fear as an obstacle to growth in your spiritual life.

Fear, fear for oneself, that something will change, perhaps threaten your comfort and your way of living, can be an obstacle before God. Most people fear change. It is one of the tools the enemy utilizes with great joy. He uses our fear of change, so it becomes a great barrier between them and God for many. Some will never come to accept Jesus because of their fear. If you see this in yourself or others, fight for you or them with love, scripture, and prayer. So much good can happen through prayer. Honestly, the world can be changed. It is easier, though, to change the heart of one. As believers, we are called to bring others to God; sometimes, your actions and behavior may be enough to start the conversations and conversion. Other times, you may have to be deliberate and seek out the nonbeliever or those who somewhat believe. If you are approached or approach them, purposely listen to your intuition and inner voice. The Holy Spirit will be with you and guide you.


Prayer:

Holy Spirit, help me eliminate any fear that is an obstacle to growth in my spiritual life. Then, let me help others do the same. Lead me to others that I can help. Use me as a guide so they can lead whole lives with God, Jesus, and you so they always feel God's presence. Let my and their conversion be complete, and let us leave behind all that is not of God. Help us share ourselves and our things to help others through difficulty and to act as an example of God's light in this world. I look for no reward other than what I know to be true. God loves us, the Holy Spirit protects us, and Jesus Christ saved us from our sins. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen
