I was manning a Spirit Radio table at a conference some time back. It was really a lot of fun! We had a opportunity to chat with people from all over the country.
Well one lady came up to me , ‘Wait till I tell’ you she started,
“We have been listening to Spirit Radio for some time now. We wanted to become supporters, but our finances were in a rough place. My husband had been out of work for seven years. Still we felt like we wanted to join the support team. Well we finally did it, we signed up, and you know what, that very same day my husband got called in for a job interview. He got the job and has been in work since”.
Sometimes God is just looking for us to take a step in faith. It is often a simple step of obedience to a nudge from the Holy Spirit.
I think of the woman in the Gospels who had been sick for some time. Doctors had promised they could heal her, she had given them her money but was not better off. She must have been disappointed. She must have felt like giving up.. and yet she determined to keep reaching out in hope.. She approached Jesus saying to herself, if I can just touch the hem of his garment.. she took a step… in faith and was rewarded.
You can’t learn to ride a bike without taking the stabilizers off.
We can’t grow in our relationship with God without taking steps in faith. We can’t discover that God is trustworthy without taking a step into the unknown with him. What step is God asking you to take today.
