Step Forward in Faith

“For our life is a matter of faith, not of sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7 TEV)

Are you waiting for God to do something? Has it occurred to you that maybe God is waiting for you to do something first? Throughout the Bible we see an important truth: The Holy Spirit releases His power at the moment you take a step of faith.

When God says go, He doesn't mean to stop. When He says now, He doesn't mean later. God told Joshua to cross the Jordan River when it was at a flood stage. He didn't tell him to wait until the torrent had subsided.

That's typical of God. He tests your faith when things look overwhelming. When Joshua faced and impassable barrier, the flood waters of the Jordan River receded only after the leaders stepped into the rushing current in obedience and faith. “As soon as the priests who carried the ark reached he Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, the water from upstream stopped flowing... The whole nation completed the crossing on dry ground.” (Joshua 3:15-17 NIV).

What should you do when you know something is God's will but you're scared to death to do it? Do it anyway. Faith is about taking the first step. God waits for you to act first. Don't wait to feel powerful or confident. Move ahead in your weakness.

Do the right thing in spite of your fears and feelings. The Bible says, "for our life is a matter of faith, not of sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7 TEV). This is how you cooperate with the Holy Spirit.

Obedience unlocks God's Power. Courageous Faith is the key to Miracles.

Now talk to God This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. Take a minute to write a prayer of response to what God said to you. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________
