Stepping out in faith

by Jessica Finney

Has God ever had you step out in faith before He would tell you what He wanted you to do?  I believe that sometimes He is testing us to see if we really mean it when we sing Where ever you lead I'll go. Have you ever thought about that some of the songs we sing in church?  I have decided to follow Jesus, Though none go with me I still will follow.  We sing those kind of songs every Sunday but do we really mean it?  God wants us to worship with our whole heart and truly mean the words we sing or say.

We have felt for awhile now that God has a different path for us but we were waiting for Him to tell us what direction, He wanted us to go.  We kept praying for God to show us and He showed us that He wanted us to leave our current position at church and follow Him.  Is it scary to not know where He is guiding us? You bet it is but we have to take that first step of faith so He knows we are willing to go where ever He wants us to go.  

Hebrews 11: 6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a re warder of those who diligently seek Him.

Sometimes when God tells us to do something we can grumble and say we aren't equipped for that.  I must be crazy to think He would be calling me to do that.  But you know what?  Moses stuttered when he talked and God used Him greatly.  He doesn't call the equipped but He equips the called.  He wants us to show people His glory and show that anything is possible.  It isn't about us and it is all about Him.

So the next time that you feel God is calling you to do something, please remember that sometimes He is just waiting for you to step out in faith. What are you waiting for?

Dear Heavenly Father, please guide us and direct us in the path that you want us to go.  We thank you for always being there for us.  I know the blessing that you have for us for stepping out in faith will be  worth it.  Where ever you lead we will go, Lord.  We completely surrender our lives to you. In Jesus, precious name I pray, Amen
