Scripture: Luke 9:43-45
In Luke 9:43-45 Jesus prophesied His coming death. His disciples didn’t understand it and they were afraid to ask Him about it. ‘Lord, whenever there are things that we don’t understand that are spoken by the Spirit, give us the boldness to ask You and to overcome the fear of the unknown.’ The fear of the unknown can have a real bondage attached to it because it keeps us from asking for God’s wisdom to show us what do when that situation emerges. We can ask for supernatural counsel and revelation how to wisely navigate what we are facing. We have to break through fear. To walk in the Spirit in the last days we cannot be dominated by fear of the unknown. It is a major issue in Scripture. The twelve were subject to it and they had to overcome it and so do we! ‘Lord, we pray that You will empower us and give us the heart of a pioneer and a trail-blazer to overcome fear of the unknown. Grant the wisdom to discern what we are walking into and act accordingly!’ Being crippled by guilt, blame and shame is the goal of the accuser of the brethren, however Christ gloriously declares us holy and blameless. This inheritance empowers us with faith to fulfill our destiny!
