“For this reason, I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.” (2 Timothy 1:6-7, ESV)
That which God has planted in you will not grow on its own. It must be fueled. It must be breathed upon. You must give it opportunity to germinate into the fullness of God’s intended story for you.
You have a call…a gift that must be “fanned into flame.” It requires consistent work: dreaming…decisions…goals…movement. You must jump, with fullness of faith, into the adventurous unknown of your God given assignment in order to see it become real. You must risk.
Take encouragement from the Word of God. You can only be excited about what God is doing when it exists outside of your own imagination. God and others may have planted the seeds of divine purpose within you. Books and other resources may have stirred the waters of your dreaming; but only you have the power to “fan into flame the gift of God.” Activate what God has given you and watch what opens in your world.
