In life, sooner or later, we all come to that point where we have a critical decision to make. We have to choose between following the dream in our heart and following what the circumstances or the people in our lives say.

Sometimes your heart is wrong. Most times the situation and the comments of the people are wrong. But what about the dream? Is the dream also wrong? Maybe not. If the dream were right, you probably will be more equipped to fulfill it. If the vision was true, you probably would have the provision for it. Some motivational teachers say that if you are struggling with an assignment then that assignment is probably not meant for you.

When you pause and think over it, you suddenly realize that it makes a lot of sense. They are more experienced. They know better. (whoever “they” are). They are right and you are wrong. So you kill that small voice on the inside. You snuff out the little flame of fire that you carried. You abandon the tiny gift and you search for another, where you will have more result and impact.

No doubt you are not the most talented singer. Yes, you are not the greatest writer or preacher. It is true you are not the fastest runner or the best dancer or the award winner in your office. 

You are discouraged  from without and then from within so you give up. You give up on yourself, on your visions, on your aspirations, on the love of your life, and you give up on God. Why? Because the circumstances and the people in your life said you should. 

You have been shushed! You have snuffed out the little flame. Why? Because you are under gifted, untalented and underprivileged.

You won’t make it any further than where you are today if you let anyone or anything shush you up one more time. I wrote this devotional for you. You are coming in contact with it because God wants you to read these words and get back up into action.

I know I am not your father in the Lord. I know I am not a popular speaker.  I know I do not have the anointing of Elijah or Elisha and the boldness of Paul. But please, “Don’t Shush me!”

The God that brought you to this month will see you through it. Challenges may come, problems may arise, sickness may challenge your resolve. I encourage you with the words of the Lord,  2 Cor 12:9 (AMPC) 
But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and [b]show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!
May you manifest his glory this March!
