Step out in faith

By faith Moses left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw Him who is invisible. Hebrews 11:27

Start taking steps of faith, according to what God said. It will lead you to see His wonders.

To believe is to take steps of faith. We show God that we believe Him, by the steps we take. Sometimes we need to take steps of faith because those steps will lead us to the answers we need.

Four men in the bible received instructions from God and saw His mighty hand only after their obedience.

  • Noah took steps of faith and began to build the ark. Noah received a command from God (Genesis 6: 9-22). And despite all mockery of the people and their questioning of logic he built a giant ark. His obedience brought salvation to him and his family, because God would soon flood the earth.
  • Moses took steps of faith by going to pharaoh despite of his personal challenges and opposition. He received a command from God to save his people (Exodus 14: 15-31), and when faced his greatest obstacle he raised his rod and saw the Red Sea split wide open. The Israelites walked out of slavery and their enemies drowned in the same waters.
  • Joshua took steps of faith when God instructed him to overtake the Promised Land: an impenetrable city, Jericho (Joshua 6: 1-21). God gave him instructions and he had to carry them out to see the results they wanted. He and the Israelites marched around the Jericho walls as God instructed and they saw the walls come down. 
  • Peter, the apostle Peter took a leap of faith and walked on water. Peter saw how Jesus walked on the water and wanted to do the same (Matthew 14: 22-33). Jesus commanded him to come to him and by faith Peter began to walk on the water. Peter was able to testify that by stepping out in faith God had control of the laws of nature.

Each of these men received an order from God, but in order to see great results they had to take steps of faith. Like them, we do not need to fully understand what God is doing or question His logic. It is about obeying His instructions even when it does not make sense to the human mind. 

If you want to see some supernatural results in your life, it is necessary that you take steps of faith. The instructions of God are to be obeyed, it’s prerequisite to see the mighty hand of God.

Let’s pray:

Gracious Father, as we instruct us and lead us by your mighty hand, help us to engage your will with a reckless faith. Teach us to trust in you, regardless of the impossibilities we see from our human eyes. Heavenly Lord, give us the courage to take the steps of faith corresponding to our situations. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.
