1 Samuel 10:22 – “Therefore they inquired further of the Lord, ‘Has the man come here yet?’ So the Lord said, ‘Behold, he is hiding himself among the baggage.”
There are those who have been chosen by God and have not yet stepped out of hiding. Shame, fear, and rejection have held you back. You’ve struggled to walk in your true identity as sons and daughters. You’ve questioned and doubted that God would have such great plans for you. You’ve wondered if you have what it takes. You’ve entertained thoughts such as, “It’s safe here. If I don’t step out, I won’t risk failure. No one will see my weaknesses or my flaws if I stay in hiding. I can’t get hurt if I hide.”
REJECT PARALYZING MIND-SETS
Isaiah 43:19 – “Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.”
Do not sell out to these lies. Come out from the baggage that holds you back, that keeps you from moving forward. Come out of the mindset that keeps you paralyzed, unable to move. Let go of the former things – past failures, past rejections. God is doing a new thing. He’s calling you out from among the baggage and leading you into a place of kingship. This place of kingship is where you’ve always belonged.
As you take the steps to move out of hiding, you will experience the reality of the peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7). This peace creates courage; a courage to face your enemies head-on without fear of failure and with the ability to walk in absolute faith in the victorious outcome, no matter what comes your way.
Isaiah 41:10 – “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
It’s time to believe God! It’s time to believe God will do exactly what He said He will do concerning you and your calling in Christ. It’s time for you to step out of hiding and into your identity and into God’s PURPOSE for your life. God has chosen you. He has called you, anointed you, and only you can do what it is that God has called you to do. If you take the steps to come out of hiding, you will begin to see the favor of God in your life in ways you’ve never experienced. You will experience the glory of God manifested in your life and through your life in ways you into the lives of others. This manifestation of His glory will no longer be a dream but a reality.
Deuteronomy 31:6-8 – “Be strong and courageous…The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
