When you step out in faith, it pleases God and develops you.

One of the most difficult things for a Christ Follower to do is to step out into the unknown when you are unsure what the outcome will be.

I remember hearing God clearly in March, 2002, when He led me to stay in my devastated marriage. I could not trust my husband, Chris, farther than I could throw him yet God, in His mysterious way, assured me that He had a plan and that it was trustworthy. So, I stepped out.

Jehovah Jireh. This name of God says he will provide according to Genesis 22:14. The scripture doesn’t say He has provided, although He certainly has. It doesn’t say He is providing, although He absolutely is. It says He will provide – and that takes faith on our parts to step toward His provision. Did you know that without faith it is absolutely impossible to please God? We are simultaneously growing and pleasing God when we step out in faith. So, let’s step.

When you step out in faith, it pleases God and develops you.

I don’t know what burden you are carrying right now. The worry about provision, the concern about a loved one, the issue that imprisons you. We’ve all had our fair share of sorrows in life. So, while I can’t tell you the outcome of your story, I can tell you that our God will carry you, comfort you and provide for you. Pinky promise.

Today, take some time to look back over your life. Think about the concerns in the past and how God brought you through them. Consider the personal growth in your life and how God made you a better version of yourself. Remember the financial strains and how God provided for you. I mean, you are far more valuable than the birds of the air and if He feeds them, won’t he care for you?

You will not be able to see the future, but you can 100% trust His hand.

When you step out in faith, it pleases God and develops you.

  1. I love this post. Yes when you step out in faith it can be very tough but God always brings us through it. Your life has inspired me to believe in things I never thought were possible. Seems like God has me in another transition, but believing in Him makes this journey a whole lot better. 😊
