Have you ever been too afraid to do something because you weren’t sure what would happen? All of us have been there. Some of us are there right now. As we aspire to follow Jesus, we are going to find ourselves in these situations all the time. In fact, if you don’t ever find yourself there…something is wrong. Your world is too safe, too comfortable.
I love the story of Abram from Genesis 12. I preached on it this past Sunday. God calls Abram to pack up and head out and that he would show him where to stop. God says, “Go then I’ll show you the land”. To me that is the essence of faith. Faith is when God says go and you start walking. The problem is that we often want to know the destination before we set out. That’s human nature!
But faith is when we tell our human nature to go take the flying leap! If God says it…go before you know.
