Chase The Lion - Stalk Or Be Stalked
For 7 days I will be doing a bible study on my bible app. It is to help one find their way with God.
If you find yourself in a pit with a lion on a snowy day, you have got a decision to make. A decision that will determine your destiny. You can run away from what you are afraid of, but you will be running the rest of your life. Or you can face your fears, taking a flying leap of faith, and chase the lion.
What is my lion? And what am I going to do with it?
My lion is my fear of being hurt by Christians, being criticized my them.
I need to realize that even though people go to church and worship does not mean they are healed or actually following Jesus, therefore they are still hurt and will hurt people. I need to choose my friends wisely in the church, just as I do in the world. This has prevented me from playing the drums, to my fullest potential, fear of being criticized, which has happened in our church. It also might have prevented me from being on backup singing on worship. As a child and a teenager, I told by my father and a bully that I couldn't sing and to stop it. Even at a Baptist church, someone turned and gave me that look that said, you're off tune. Apparently, I can carry a tune. Fear of people prevents me from getting to my potential.
2 Samuel 23
If your dream doesn't scare you, it's too small.
