|Fear of the unknown can limit us|
- Familiarity: “Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief” (Matthew 13:58). In his own town, Jesus was limited because of familiarity. People thought of him as the carpenter’s son, not the Son of God with power.
Release the familiar and be willing to change
- Fear: God assured the people He was giving them the land of their enemies (Numbers 3:8), yet when the spies saw the giants in the land, they doubted and said, “…we are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we” (Number 13:31). Because of their doubt they were delayed by 40 years of wandering in the wilderness.
- Focusing on the physical, not spiritual: “Yes, again and again they tempted God and limited the Holy One of Israel” (Psalm 78:41).
