I feel like there are a lot of spiritual agoraphobes out there; Christians who are weighed down by sin, even though they don’t have to be. Are you walking in the freedom that Christ has paid for, or are your a spiritual agoraphobe, being held back from truly living?
Despite your present circumstance, know that you are the apple of His eye, His precious child, and don’t let anyone or anything tell you any different. Cry out to Him in the middle of your wilderness, ask Him to meet you in the middle of your “waste” and wait to see what He will do. He surely won’t disappoint.
What is God calling you to do? Even though it may be scary, get out from behind your “baggage”. Don’t think that your past disqualifies you from doing amazing things, in fact, your specific set of experiences may be what uniquely qualifies you to do something incredible. Don’t let your baggage hold you back, step out in faith and be amazed at what God can do through you!
