Step Out

Given December 14, 2005
God has made many promises and provided many things for us that we haven't taken hold of yet. Why is that? I'm reminded of when God told Joshua, "Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses." Joshua 1:3. God had said, Moses is dead, the time of mourning is over, now get up and go take possession of what I've given you. But what had to happen before they could "take the land"? Joshua, as their leader, had to take that first step! And that was probably a scary thing. Moses had been leading all this time and now Joshua had to take over and step into the unknown. But God said He would be with him just as He was with Moses.

God has made similar promises to you and me but we can't take possession of them standing still. We have to step forward, in faith, and trust that God is in control. He is you know.

I think of this many mornings when I get out of bed. As I take steps around the end of my bed, I'll think of "taking ground". I'll say things like, "Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world." 1 John 4:4, "I have been made the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ my Lord.", 2 Corinthians 5:21, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philipians 4:13. Every step I take, quoting these scriptures and some others, makes me stronger in the Lord. "Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you." James 4:7. Devil, get outta my way! And he does.

Don't be afraid to step out into the place God's calling you to. Memorize some power scriptures and take that first step. Man, what a wonderful land is waiting for you. Step into it!
