As we enter into year 2022, I want you to really think about who you are, what you want and what mark you want to make. James 1:6 says but when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” So whatever choice you make for the vision for who you want to be and want to do, commit to the choice and be that. Being what you have chosen requires you to have courage.
Courage to become`inspite of the many obstacles that may come your way. Even though there may not be any evidence that you can become whatever your heart desires and live your dreams, continue to commit to becoming it. You may have to use your imagination when committing to your choice. Create imagined circumstances and situations to help you really commit to who you want to be and do. For instance, if you owned that business you have been dreaming of, imagine who you would be, what would you like to represent, and how would you act if you had it today? What changes would you make in your life to have what you want? Once you get a picture of who you are make it be who you are moment by moment.
There is something about believing in what and who you are and having unshakeable trust that you can do it. It brings life and energy to what you are doing and becoming. I love the Bible. I am reminded as I write of when the disciples said to Jesus walking on water, they cried out in fear, supposing a ghost was approaching them. However, Jesus called to them and said take courage. That word “take” means not to “have” it passively but to take it and own courage. Jesus was letting the disciples know that it was He and there wad no need to be afraid.
Then Peter said, if it is you, Lord, command me to come to you on the water. Peter began to walk on the water but when he saw the boisterous wind, he was afraid and began to sink. Then Jesus reached out His hand, caught Peter and asked: “why do you doubt?” Doubt cripples us and depletes us of our future. In order to move into what you want for this year, you must take courage and not doubt.
It is so often that people want to go back to what is comfortable. Comfortable is the prescription of stuck oftentimes. Some people are not only afraid to fail, they are afraid of success. You were created to succeed. So let’s move forward this year believing in what you may not see. Think on this: the air you breathe is invisible, but you still know it is there. God is more tangible than the air you breathe. God specializes in the things unseen. You must activate your faith to see the unseen. That is why the Bible says, “without faith it’s impossible to please God.”
Today lets take ourselves serious and begin to write goals that are aligned with your vision and commit to your desire. Really believe in your heart that what you want will truly be accomplished and that the God within has equipped you with the tools that are needed to fulfill your desires. There is no special formula to committing. I start by hearing and obeying and then writing down what I heard and making a plan all while speaking it into the atmosphere.
I believe once you commit to the vision and believe, God will start opening doors and before you know it, your life will become what decision you made. In the beginning, there may not be any real tangible things you can see and touch. Make your belief tangible. Make your belief real to you. Live in faith not doubt.
I can imagine that when Noah in the Bible was building his ark, people walked by him and thought he was crazy. Noah never stopped building. He committed to the desire and built by faith. What will you build? How will your 2022 end. I hope you are more courageous tomorrow than you are today.
