“I shall run the way of Your commandments, for You will enlarge my heart.” (Ps 119:32)
Fear of failure is a very real roadblock to progress. If we have not done something in the past, there is a tangible concern that we will fail if we attempt it in the future. New things are hard. They push our comfort zones and test the boundaries of what we are capable of. Yet God makes a promise – if we will pursue His commandments, He will give us a heart big enough for the task.
Trying to be a better husband or wife, making a commitment to read your Bible every day or pray regularly, removing that addiction from your life once and for all… as you contemplate your goals for this New Year, remember that God can enlarge your heart for whatever command you give it to.
“As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.” (Lk 8:15)
