As I have been challenging you for weeks now to step out of your comfort zone, I’ve had a personal challenge to take a RADICAL step! It’s funny (or maybe not), but I do these messages a few weeks in advance and sure enough, when I read them and watch the videos, inevitably I’m having to deal with the exact subject matter I talked about just a few weeks earlier. Oftentimes, people will say, “Were you speaking to ME in that last video?” Yes, many people (me included), feel like we are having our “mail read!”
In my life, Victoria and I decided to sell our house and step out in faith (out of our comfort zone) into the unknown. We have NO idea where we will land, but we feel that God has orchestrated this move and we need to follow His prompting. This is SO out of character for me. I have NO control. I have NO idea where we will live. I have NO idea what the next step is, except to follow Jesus. Talk about a step of faith…I have to live out the scripture below (my favorite BTW)…
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
So, What… for This Week?
Not to prop myself up as some great example of faith, since I’ve been fairly vulnerable in this blog for the last 16-years as to my propensity to lean on MY OWN control and fear and NOT on faith, but this time, I’m putting it out for ALL to see (and hold me accountable to)…I want to trust God and God alone in this search for a home. I choose NOT to run ahead. I choose not to make my OWN way. I choose to submit to Him and His ways!
What about YOU? In what ways can YOU choose to submit to faith and turn from fear this week?
