Align your faith with movement.
- Peter first showed his faith when he stepped out the boat to walk on water.
- Abraham first showed his faith when he left his home to go to an unknown place.
- David first showed his faith when he agreed to fight the giant.
We delay or even forfeit our blessings when we are too afraid to take that initial step.
Stepping into the unknown, as intimidating and scary as it is, defines faith. When our reality of God’s love is beyond a mere concept, we then understand He will never lead us in the wrong direction. That internal understanding of His love helps us to walk by faith; knees shaking and all.
Back when I was a teenager, the old family car had a few issues. One day when I wanted to use the car, I asked my father if it was safe for me to drive. He said he wouldn’t let me drive it if he thought otherwise. Also with our heavenly Father, He wouldn’t tell us to do something without His protective covering. God has arranged all the factors involved; His timing to execute is perfect; so don’t wait to see it; show your faith—first!
What steps of faith is God asking you to take?
See you next week on Paulette Talks Faith.
