As it was for Abraham, so it is for us. Every step of obedient faith holds the promise of inheritance. Looking behind adds nothing to my future, but stepping forward with eyes lifted means territory added. Will I delay in unholy dependence upon my known resources or will I hear and obey? I choose the latter, renouncing the freezing effect of fear and embracing what is ahead by faith. Stepping forward in yielded obedience is the only safe path. O Lord my Rock, strengthen my resolve with Your divine touch. Open my eyes to the previously unseen. Guide my feet to Your chosen path.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth,”Acts 1:8 ESV. Most people would like to make an impact on the world around them, but it seems so overwhelming. Is it really? An avalanche begins with the movement of one single object; your next move may be the ignition point of something amazing. Inspired ideas launched by passionate commitment and followed by steady advances can change the trajectory of your entire future. I’ve had the privilege of being around quite a few world changers over a lifetime. Some are truly natural stars, but frankly, most are amazingly ordinary; it is their stubborn relentlessness to make something special happen that is the difference. Jesus’ disciples were simple men and women that changed their world. His true disciples still are. Lord, in Your Mercy, move my heart that I may be used to move others.
