Take the Step of Faith

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Hebrews 11:6).

Every child of God has faith. The Bible says God has given to every man the measure of faith (Romans 12:3). However, a lot of time, some aren’t bold to act their faith. For example, during a Church meeting, there could be someone who has a word of prophecy, but instead of going ahead to proclaim it, he’s nervous and unable to summon enough boldness to do so.

The person could be thinking, "I’ve never prophesied before; how can I just stand up in this crowd and start prophesying?" With such thoughts going through his mind, his faith dissipates, and the opportunity passes by, without him fulfilling God’s plan for the hour. Whereas, the one who’s filled with the Spirit doesn’t even wait to get the full message before he stands up to give the Word. Once he hears a sentence from the Spirit, he steps out in faith to give it. And as he begins, the Spirit leads him on and on until he gives the full message.

 To walk in the Spirit is to walk by faith; and faith is active, not passive. It’s the response of the human spirit to the Word of God. So, always be bold to act your faith. When God’s Word comes to you, act on it. Take a step of faith. Imagine what the Lord said to Abraham, "…Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee" (Genesis 12:1). The Bible tells us that Abraham, without knowing where he was going, obeyed. He took a step of faith.

 Noah did the same thing; he took a step of faith on the basis of the words He received from God: "By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house…" (Hebrews 11:7). Take a step of faith today, by boldly acting on the Word.

I’m bold and very courageous! I take giant strides today on the basis of the Word! By my faith in the Word, I see the invisible and do the impossible, for the Word in me is a propelling force! I’m triumphant in my going out and in my coming in, by the ability of God’s Spirit at work in me! Hallelujah!

Dear Jesus, I need You in my life. I acknowledge that I have sinned and I come to You right now confessing that and asking your forgiveness. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I believe You are the Son of God and that God rose you from the dead for my Justification.

I open the door of my heart and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Please take control of my life from here forward and make me the kind of person you want me to be. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
