For you are our glory and our joy.
1 Thessalonians 2:20
When the Lord exhorts you to do a thing, do not waffle, do not shirk, and do not go about asking others if it is the right thing to do. Step out in faith and do it.
Nothing is more egregious to our walk than this need for constant confirmation that it is the will of God. Step out in faith. Make mistakes. Learn from your own mistakes. It is not the end of the world. If a child learning to walk stops with every step to find out if it is alright to step, he will never walk.
When you walk, fear nothing but the awe of God should fill you that His glory has covered you from head to toe. Step out in faith, with eyes wide open knowing full well that what you are about to do is crazy and impossible in the eyes of the world, then do it. Nothing worth doing was ever easy or normal. Faith is believing what we have not seen, not believing that it is safe so we do it.
Even if you are afraid, do it. Even if it will humiliate you, do it. What is the worst you can do, fail? So what? Do it again and again. Make this the day you take your life into your own hands and step out in faith wherever the Lord is leading. And His mercy and love will cover you mistakes and all, successes and failures. Nothing is worse than ending this life thinking of all the adventure in the Lord missed out on for fear of errors.
Today is the first day of your decision to make it a glorious, exciting life, living in the Lord.
