Taking Steps of Faith and Obedience

He can be trusted to lead us well. And His leading will always, always draw us closer to Him.

May we follow.

“O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your dwelling places.” Psalm 43:3

 

 

From the Father’s heart for you today:

 

Come.

Draw near with confidence to the throne of grace and receive mercy and find grace (Heb. 4:16).

Just step in and enter.

That’s all anyone must do.

You make things hard, making the ‘hoops’ so high that you quit before you ever get started.

 

Peter just said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water,” heard Me say “Come!” (that’s all), and stepped out (Matt. 14:27,28,29).

 

Peter did not, in that moment, make a list of all that he needed to take care of in his internal and outer life and character BEFORE he deemed himself worthy to take a step of faith.

 

See the lesson here.

My children make the decision to TRUST Me, and then immediately (often without even realizing it) make a long list of ‘do’s and don’ts’ to be worthy and ABLE to walk out in that trust. This actually demolishes their pure childlike faith in Me because the checklist is too long and impossible. It takes their eyes off of Me and on themselves and their failures and inability.

Therefore they choose to take no step rather than just take one step of faith at a time. 

What if you just took this current step of obedience and then the next, learning as you go?

In pure trust and dependence upon Me.

 

 

“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” 2 Cor. 1:20

So the question then is : Will we take Me up on them?

I am yours and you are Mine. Use Me. Put Me to use in My fullness and power wherever you go.
