Is God calling you to step out in faith – or – has He called you in the recent past to do so? If so, I can just imagine the emotions you have and are feeling. Let me guess, it’s being excited and scared at the same time. You’re wanting to do it but have no idea how and you’re not sure of the reactions of those watching will be, when you take that step. I know that trusting in God may seem risky, dangerous, and even upsetting. Especially because we can’t see exactly where we’re going or what God is up to in our lives and circumstances. BUT – I encourage you to trust Him anyway! Even as a pastor, my relationship with God continues to grow. Personally, I learn to trust in the Lord deeper, with each day He gives me! It’s with each day that I’m willing to take that step the He is showing me who He is; that He is not a God that intends to push me around but a God that just wants to steer me in the right direction! FAITH is trusting God! It’s moving forward, knowing that He’s right there with us! It’s believing in Him and following His direction at all costs! It’s leaning not on our own understanding but acknowledging Him in all our ways!
REMEMBER, FAITH PLEASES GOD! ARE YOU WILLING TO WALK BY FAITH?
Hebrews 11:6 “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.” (NLT)
