It is time to step out and do those things that you know you are suppose to be doing. Change can be scary. Unknown change can cause you to freeze in fear. But finding faith and walking in that faith will help you take those steps with out being slowed by fear.
1. Faith requires trust. The only way for me to trust the leading of God is to have a relationship with God. This relationship comes from spending time in His word and with Him every single day.
2. Faith requires action. No matter how much you know there is no test without action. You must step out and do in order for faith to take affect.
3. Faith requires risk. The risk may be in this world and it may involve comments, attitudes and even actions of others in the form of ridicule and mocking, but there is risk when you step out and faith.
4. Faith is always fulfilled. God will always do what He promises to do. Knowing what he has promised and stepping out in that promise in faith is the way you can ensure that the promises will be completed.
It takes faith to live the life that I am called to. I have to be willing to give everything to God and to trust Him with the outcome. It is easier for most of us to fall into a pattern of comfort and familiarity. Faith is a simpler path, but it is not easier.
Faith simply requires that I give everything to God:
- my time
- my finances
- my children
- my marriage
- my property
- my possessions
- my talents
- my gifts
- my knowledge
I give everything to God and then I join Him where He is working to fulfill His purpose. It is a life of this kind of faith that brings about peace, prosperity and the fulfillment of our own purpose for being here today.
