When God’s Plans For You Seem Scary (or Crazy)

I am not a doctor, none of the information on any of these pages pertaining to the Ketogenic Diet or Adrenal Fatigue should be considered medical advice and should not replace the care of your personal physician. I am simply eager to share the information I have learned while on my own journey to health. Before you embark on this journey, please consult with your physician.

I was standing on the rooftop of a tall building.  It was dark outside, but there was plenty of light to be able to see a wooden plank lying flat over the edge of the building, almost like a diving board.

I felt an internal nudge as if I was supposed to stand on that wooden board, so I slowly walked towards it.  I quickly realized that something was different about this board.  There was nothing that was attaching the board to the rooftop! It was sitting there with no support of any kind.  I knew in my heart that I was supposed to stand on it, but I was thinking “This is stupid. If I stand with both feet on this board I’m just going to fall to my death.”

I stood there staring at the board for what seemed to be an eternity. I placed one foot on it (and kept the other one firmly planted on the rooftop) to test it and see if there truly was no support there.  I was right. No support.  I knew I was supposed to get on it, but it just wasn’t making any sense.

Do God's plans seem scary to you? Here is what you need to remember when you're afraid to take that leap of faith to fulfill the purpose for which God created you!

After a few moments I placed my foot on the board again, and then I felt a gentle but firm push.  The board gave way and I started to free fall off of the building. I was terrified for maybe 2 seconds before I heard a voice say, “Check your pocket.”  I reached into my pocket and there was a button. I heard the voice again….”Push it.”  I pushed the button and a parachute shot out from the button and I started to drift safely. As I was breathing a sigh of relief, I heard in the most loving and comforting voice, “See…I got you.”

That’s when I woke up from my dream.

Have you ever felt like the God-given vision and assignment placed before you is completely crazy or impossible or downright terrifying, but you know it’s what you’re destined to do and it is the will of God concerning you?

It could be related to your business, ministry, professional career, or even your marriage or family.

I want to remind you today that you are not alone. You never were and you never will be.

I want to remind you today that you are equipped for the task ahead of you.  You were equipped before you even entered the Earth.

Ephesians 2:10 says: “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath ordained that we should walk in them.”

You are God’s masterpiece. You are not a product of your past or present environment. You are not a product of your experiences. You are a product of God.  You were created for a work that is beneficial, distinguished, and honorable. As far as that assignment or task is concerned? Well, according to the original Greek text the word ordained is proetoimazō which means to fit up in advance (literally or figuratively).

You have been pre-fit and prepared for what’s ahead of you.

With that good news in mind, go ahead and take the risk. Step boldly on that wooden plank. Your loving Father’s got you.
