Hebrews 11 New International Version (NIV)
Faith in Action
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
LEAP OF FAITH ~
2 Corinthians 5:7 New International Version (NIV)
For we live by faith, not by sight.
LEAP OF FAITH ~
Sometimes we can't see the next step of life. We must live knowing God is at work and if we don't leap on somethings, we will never know. I had someone speaks to me about a dream of their heart. They believed that God gave them the vision and who I am to say it's not right. It's sounded great and I used the words, "leap of faith". That's all it took for them to realize they need to leap into what God is saying to them. It was a true God moment. Their life has changed and forever will be grateful they did leap.
Hebrews 11:6 New International Version (NIV)
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
When I read Hebrews 11:6, I knew that my faith mattered. I wanted to please God and I wanted him to use my life. It says without faith, it is impossible to please God. We must seek God and in seeking him, he unleashed our faith. You can just jump into his plan and know he is able to keep you. It's a true leap of faith. Impossible situations and yet nothing is impossible with God. Have you ever seen that game of a person ready to catch someone falling and the falling person needs to trust that person? It's a true test of trust. That's how God wants us to trust him. Let go and let God work in your life.
MAKING A CHANGE ~
Leap of faith in changing something is huge. You might not realize how things will work out and yet you know it will. A peace beyond a human understanding and rest in knowing God is right here. Trusting God is not always easy either. We want reassurance on somethings, but God doesn't always show us the bigger plan. I hope today that you will trust God in all areas of your life, take the leap of faith and rest in knowing you are not alone. If you don't try, you will never know the outcome. Some pretty amazing things happen when God says leap or step into a new beginning. Change can be good and that's a fact. Purpose to spend time with God and learn of his ways.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
