Step out on faith
He’s calling us to step out on faith
“He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it..” (1 Thessalonians 5:24, ESV).
Years ago while standing at a church altar, I had gone up for prayer. Tears running down my face, I felt afraid. The Father was having me step out on faith and trust Him in a way I had never trusted Him before. I was totally out of my comfort zone like a baby standing for the first time. I wondered, “What if I fall?” “Can I really do this?” “Lord, help me.” And with all of these thoughts going through my mind, my Father came to my aid and encouraged me. He reminded that He had called me and He will do it. Not me…Him.
A lot of us are wondering how we are going to do the things that the Father has called us to do, but let me encourage you with the same thing He encouraged me with. It is not you that is doing anything. It is the Father. Didn’t He say, it’s not by power, nor by might, but by My spirit says the Lord? If any great victory is going to be had by you, it will be by His strength and power. If any change is going to take place in your life, it will be changed by His power. If you are going to walk the straight and narrow way, it will be by His grace and power. All He is requiring of you is you to yield to Him, trust in Him and step out on faith!
