TITLE: DEALING WITH THE ROOT OF EXCUSES
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
JEREMIAH 1:8 “Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD.”
There are different channels through which excuses spring forth, but today we will be looking at one of them.
Majority of failures are found amongst people who are used to making excuses. People don’t just give excuses, they are propelled into that mood by a force.
Jeremiah got in the mood to give excuses, God tells him to stop the excuse but also went ahead to deal with the root of the problem. Truth is, every fruit has a root; and one root of excuses is FEAR .
God made Jeremiah know that He is the all-knowing God. He attacked the spirit of fear in Jeremiah, “do not be afraid of them”
You too, you need to look inward and find out the reason why you are making excuses. Could it be that you’re afraid of something? Scared of failing? Scared of succeeding? Are you scared of embarrassment, rejection,? Are you scared of making mistake or having to compete with people better and more sophisticated than you?
None of the above is worth the excuse you are making compared to the satisfaction you’ll get if you risked it to give that dream a shot.
Why do you not have to fear? “For I am with you and will rescue you, declares the Lord.” That’s the assurance you need to carry around with you… God is with you.
Whether or not there are giants in the land, fix your eyes on the goodness and fruitfulness of the land, with this constant inner assurance that God is with you and will rescue you from any danger. Say bye to MR FEAR, become fearless because confidence in God will be required for this next higher level you’re entering.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
FATHER GOD, THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS BEING THERE FOR ME. I KNOW I CANNOT BE SWALLOWED UP OR DEFEATED IN JESUS NAME… AMEN

FEAR IS A TOOL BUT, FAITH REMAINS A MORE POWERFUL TOOL… CHARLES CHUKWUEMEZIE
