Don't let fear keep you from doing some of those good things that you know you should do.

"Go through the camp and tell the people, 'Get your supplies ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.' (Joshua 1:11)

So Joshua said to the Israelites: "How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you?  (Joshua 18:3)
 
The word possess in these passages mean to drive out and seize.  God had already said the land was theirs.  They owned it.  Before they could occupy it and enjoy it, they had to do something.  That something we all have to do if we want something bad enough.  WE MUST GO AFTER IT.    Some of the clans of Israel had seized their land and were living happily on it with their families.  Others were not; they did not believe God enough.  They allowed the threat from the surrounding enemies to back them in a corner.  So God asked, “How long will you wait . . . ?” 
 
Be careful that you don’t wait too long and end up missing everything God has given you.  A couple of days ago I listened as a lady in her mid fifties reflect on how she wanted to be a nurse and regretted not pursuing her dreams.  She was going to do some good in the world as a nurse, but she waited too long.  I wanted to ask her “What stopped you?”  Instead I said hopefully, “It’s not too late; why don’t you do look into it?”  I hope it’s not too late.
 
For that person who’s waiting on you to discover a cure for cancer or AIDS or just bring a kind word that would give him hope, it might be too late if you wait.  There are many good reasons to wait or take it slow.  Fear is not such a good reason.  I’ve met many people who won’t try because they are afraid to fail or afraid of what others may say.  If you must be afraid, be afraid of God telling you that you didn’t do your best.  If you must be afraid, be afraid of looking in the mirror and seeing a person who could have and should have but didn’t. 
 
Jesus died and rose from the dead with all power and authority which He gave to us when He said take go in My name.  As a child of God, you can wake up in the morning and say, “God, you have given me so many blessings.  I own them and now I’m going to possess them today in Jesus’ Name!”
 
God is calling you to seize the moment.  Will you answer the call?
