God can and will do epic things through you, but you must learn to risk. Pastor Derwin Gray shares three obstacles that may be keeping you from taking risks.

God can do epic things through you.


God can and will do epic things through you.

But you must learn to risk.

Let this leak into your soul like a slow-drip IV: The greater the risk, the greater the reward.

Here are three obstacles that’ll keep you from risking:


  • Of course you’re afraid! If what you’re attempting doesn’t scare you, it’s way too small. As it pertains to fear, we must be more afraid of missing out on what God wants to do through us than the fear of failure. 


  • If we think all the stars will line up and we’ll know for sure the risk we’re about to take is from God, then we’ll never risk. I was not 100% sure God was calling my wife and me to plant Transformation Church. I thought He was, but I wasn’t sure. Waiting on the perfect time and the perfect circumstances will prevent you from risking. 


  • We need to know where we’re going. And when we get there, it’s off-the-charts glorious! When people see a future that is so life-giving, so inspiring, so transformative, they’ll mobilize and sprint into the future and drag it back into the present. People don’t follow unclear, uninspiring visions. 

God can do epic things through you. Will you risk in marriage, singleness, at your job, starting that new business, going for the starting position on the football team?
