what happens if God wants you to do something, but you don't do it???

God wants me to do something, but because of fear i haven't done it yet. I know you get punished if you go against God, but how can i be braver and do this

  • Do it afraid. Tell God that you are scared out of your wits, but you are going to do it anyway, because you know it's what He wants you to do. Sometimes, when I've done that, it's been a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. Sometimes, I have been shaking in my boots the whole time I was doing it. God honors our obedience and not how we do that thing. So just pick a time and do it! You will feel much better than you do now.

  • know that God wont ask you to do something that you cant do. he doesnt not ask you to fullfill impossible tasks. he will never give you more than you can handle. yes it will be difficult-but theres obviously a reason that he wants you to do it or else he wouldnt ask for it to be done.

  • If he is talking to you, then you need to go get some mental help!! Not to be rude or anything, but I do know a few people that "hear God" and they needed some serious help. Don't listen to him and just do what you think is right. That is if it doesn't involve killing anyone.

  • If you do not do what God is asking of you, he will not punish you. Whenever God tells me to do something and I do it, I find out there is always a blessing on the other side just for being obedient. I have also found that when I don't do it because of fear he will lay that something on someone else's heart that is a willing vessel. That really bothered me when I saw another person getting the blessing I was supposed to get because I was not obedient. Just believe God and do what he says, he wants you to learn to trust and obey his voice. Believe me you will be greatly blessed in the end! Be of good courage!
