Taking a step of faith

April 3, 2009

He [Jesus] said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.

--Matthew 14:29

There’s nothing quite as scary as taking that first step of faith. Yet at the same time, there’s nothing quite as exhilarating as actually taking that first step of faith!

So often in life, we’re averse to any kind of risk… anything that might take us out of our comfort zone. But that’s the great part about the Christian life. It’s risky sometimes! 

Yet we know that with any step of faith, our hope is in the Lord Jesus Christ, who as the Scripture says, will not let your foot slip.

Remember Moses? There he was, minding his business as a shepherd when God spoke to him from the burning bush, and called him to deliver the children of Israel. What was Moses’ response?  “I can’t do it, Lord. I don’t speak very well, and no one will believe me.”

Then God asked Moses, “What’s in your hand?” Moses looked down at his shepherd’s rod and said, “A stick.”

God eventually used that stick… that ordinary shepherd’s crook… to bring water from a rock, to split the Red Sea, and to deliver an entire nation from the hands of Pharaoh! 

God used what Moses was already doing… something he was already good at… to do what only God could do.

So what about you? What’s in your hand today? Could it be that, like Moses, God could use something you’re already doing, something you’re already good at, to accomplish his purpose?

If you sense that God is urging you to take that first step of faith today, I urge you… once and for all… just do it! It may feel risky, but through Christ Jesus, your future is secure. Your course is set. God may be just waiting on you so you can start the rest of your life!

So look at what’s in your hand, trust in God’s care and provision for you, and take that first step of faith. Will it be scary? Yeah, maybe. Will it be exhilarating? Absolutely!

Jesus said all it takes is the faith of a mustard seed to move a mountain. It’s my prayer that God will give you the courage to take that first step to see the mountains move in your life today.

Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out

Dear Friend,

Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today!  --Jack Graham
