Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you.” Genesis 12:1 NKJV
This verse reminded me again, that God cannot direct your steps if you are not moving. Sometimes the voice of God is merely an impression, something that repeatedly comes to your mind. And as you take a step you get clear direction as to the next step. Rarely have I gotten a clear picture of the entire outcome until I took several steps in the direction God was leading me.
You see faith is built one step at a time. It’s not faith in your ability, but it’s faith in God’s ability.
In Psalm 37 the scripture says that the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and he takes great delight in the plans He has for him. That in itself takes trust. You don’t know everything and if you did you could do it yourself. God wants you to trust in him!
If you knew ahead of time where you were going and what you were going to be doing you would formulate your own plan and get there your own way. That’s not how God works people! God wants you to rely on Him.
When God led Moses into the wilderness, he took one step after another until he ended at the Red Sea. Even though it looked like the end of it, God opened the Red Sea and made a way across. So what may look like you took the wrong way, just rest in the knowledge that God has a plan and a purpose for what you think might be a dead end.
My friend, if you are stuck in a place where you feel there’s no going forward or backward, this is the time to spend time with Him, seeking His face and enjoying His presence. Wait upon the Lord. Rest in His promises. He who began a good work in you is faithful to complete it.
