I’m probably one of the biggest sissies on the planet! Yet it seems like God continually takes me on a journey that challenges me to check mark my way down my “To Conquer” list.
I’m so thankful He loves me so much that He won’t leave me where I am – wallowing in my fear – so afraid to fail that I’m not willing to take a risk. That’s who I was without Christ – just one big sissy!
But since the day the Lord radically saved this broken girl with a bad past and a bleak future, He has called me to live beyond myself. At times those unknown steps in an unfamiliar direction have had me shakin’ in my boots, but they always give me an opportunity to see God do in and through me that which I know would be impossible on my own.
Today, God may be calling you to take another step in the grand adventure of serving Him. Like Joshua (Joshua 3:4), God may want to take you down a path you’ve never traveled before in order to do that which only He can get the glory for.
Each step of faith is another opportunity to see God move in and through our lives for our good and His glory. Each step of the way He promises His presence …we just have to trust him every step of the way we hear His voice say, “Fear not…this is the way, walk ye in it.”
Isaiah 41:10 says,
“Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
He may call us into the storm, He may call us to step out of the boat, but His call always comes with the promise of His presence and His gentle voice speaking peace to our hearts.
He is greater than our greatest fear and more powerful than our biggest storm. So, step out of your comfort zone, sweet friend – answer His call to the next step and trust Him.
Sweet friends, what is God calling you to do that causes you to fear? What is He calling you to do that is beyond you? Do you trust Him?
