Too Often

2 Corinthians 5:7 ESV “for we walk by faith, not by sight.”

Too often we are standing off to the side of the bridge that can take us to our next step in our life. We look at the bridge in amazement as others travel onward; standing there wondering what would happen in our life if we just take the chance and cross over.

What keeps us off the bridge to the next chapter in our life? Fear and lack of faith plays an important role in keeping us paralyzed from following the Lord to the next adventure He has for us.

We are afraid of what might happen if we take the steps over the bridge. The fear of the unknown keeps us from moving forward so we shrink back in a lack of faith in the Lord. Because faith in the Lord removes the paralyzing fear in our lives. We should be more afraid of failing to follow or staying in the same place when He leads us forward.

What lies over the bridge? Challenges, problems, difficulties, blessings, and so much more if we will just step in faith and follow Jesus.

Faith is trusting Jesus for the steps ahead!

Faith is moving forward.

Faith is following Christ.

Faith is trusting His promises.

Faith is action.

Many times, faith is one step at a time but you have to take the step.

Faith is not saying I trust God; faith is following Jesus where He leads me.

Proverbs 3:5–6 ESV “3:5 ¶ Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
3:6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
