A Kingdom Leader follows the lead of the Lord into difficult circumstances. Very often that situation will include fear and a heavy challenge. Somehow we don't expect the giant problems that confront us.
Do the problems in your life seem enormous? Do you find yourself looking small when you face those troubles? Do others attempt to turn you away from the path the Lord has given you? Were is your faith anchored? Is it focused on your ability or God's ability?
Caleb Wholly followed the Lord. He was not afraid of the giants who occupied the promised land. In fact he was over 80 years old when Joshua lead them to attack the promised land. He said that he wanted the giants. The following scripture speaks of Caleb and his mindset during this massive challenge.
Joshua 14:8 (ESV)8 But umy brothers who went up with me made the heart of the people melt; yet I wholly followed the Lord my God.
Don't let your heart be melted by the doubt of others. Remember who you are representing and focus on His ability, not yours.
