Faith.

leap-of-faith

How often do you step out in faith? Think about that question for a moment. As we journey through our lives, we often face opportunities that we know can be challenging, or seemingly impossible. Our hearts may desire to take action, but we just don’t know how. We receive nudging’s from God, but often times we ignore those nudging’s because we cannot fathom acting upon them. As humans we tend to stick with what feels comfortable. We may be living a secure and structured life, and we don’t want to interrupt that routine. But what if you acted upon the nudging’s or visions? What if each one of us stepped out in complete faith, and allowed God to use us to our full potential? It takes a special kind of faith to step up and boldly go where God is leading you to go. It takes a close relationship with God…one that consists of continuous prayer and the willingness to listen and be guided. Jesus had to trust in His Father to give Him wisdom and guidance in every step He took. We must have that same trust. Each one of us is capable of being more than we are right this moment. God uses each one of us in special and powerful ways. As you walk through each day…seek God in prayer. Ask God to begin showing you where He would like to use you even more. Your unique qualities are extremely valuable. Step out in faith and allow God to use you in mighty ways!

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” MATTHEW 19:26

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” JOHN 16:33

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. HEBREWS 11:1

God is with us.
