Every person has some things that hold them back from being their best. It could be money, fear, health, family, job, education, generational curses and the list is endless. When you take a chance to know God and give your all to Him, everything will change for you.
Mark 5:25-29 reads, “And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, when she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, if I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. And straight away the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague” (KJV).
This woman had suffered for twelve years with the same problem year after year. When she heard about Jesus, she took a chance knowing that this could be her chance to be healed after she had tried all the physicians. She was tired of suffering from the same thing each year, and when she took that chance, she was healed instantly. There are some instances where you need to be bold enough and take a step ahead in trying to deal with your challenges.
You may have some close friends and family members talking you out of your deliverance, discouraging you, but you need to trust and believe in God for He alone has the power to change things in your life. You need to let go of your situation so that you gain your destiny and lose some bondage to gain freedom.
You need to pray like Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10: “Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And God granted his request” (NIV).
If Jabez had not taken a chance to cry unto the Lord, his wishes were never going to be granted. But he took a step of faith and called to God knowing that He is a God who answers prayers. You should always be bold enough to face your fears so that you are able to progress in life and conquer all the challenges you face.
