Bike riding. Something I really liked as a child. I remember being in like 1st or 2nd grade when my dad first showed me how to ride my bike. It was the cutest bike ever. You know the one with the basket in front and the colorful streamers on the handle bars. I loved that bike because it had training wheels. I felt secure because it was stable. I would ride down the block about two houses in both directions because my parents didn’t want me going to far. Then one day my dad told me it was time to take the training wheels off. I remember thinking why would he want me to fall. I can’t do it. It only took his comforting voice letting me know Daddy’s here. You see he was right behind me holding the seat as I began to pedal and before I knew it I was riding without fear.
There was no need to fear, because my daddy was there. I knew he would not let me fall. Life can be a scary place. There are so many unknowns, and I always thought I had to play it safe so I wouldn’t fall. I have been going through life with training wheels on because I like the idea of safety and security. Have you ever wondered who will catch me if I fall? Have you ever wondered who you can depend on?
Let me share this thought with you. Someone once said “God placed the best things in life on the other side of terror”. So the lesson to learn is there is nothing to fear. The thought that you will fail is just an illusion. Fear desires to be your master, and you the slave. Holding you captive from your destiny. The enemy doesn’t want us to have all that God has in store for his children! That’s right we are HIS children!
In the message translation, the bible says in Romans 8:15-17, “This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirit and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us – an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through hard times with him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with him!”
Isn’t it good to know Our Father is with us every step of the way. I know he loves me and only wants the very best for me! I have the privilege of being his child. I am no longer a slave to fear but a child of God. As a child of a king I have complete access to his inheritance! I want it all! I want my Destiny!
So what’s next Daddy??!! I have no fear, I know you are here!!
