Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord:His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come to us as the rain.” Hosea 6:3, KJV
In every God-inspired venture the person with sufficient maturity to obey the Lord emerges to lead. Their faith gives substance to inspired hope that moves forward until the path becomes visible in a natural sense.
If your mission today calls you to be that leader, confront difficult doors with faith-filled words – faith will open them! Along the way, if the process becomes risky that doesn’t mean your direction is wrong – use your faith! Others may not see what you seebut they will come alongside and walk with you if your leadership is decisive.
For you and them, at points where you must decide to move forward or remain in safe, less-complicated territory, remember the example of our Lord – He kept moving! Jesus understood times and seasons and, prompted by His Father, in right timing and the place of God’s choosing, He kept moving, according to Divine mandate.
Follow His example: Refuse to hangbetween multiplied mental possibilities; move forward, away from the precipice of indecision. Don’t be distracted by worst-case outcomes that paralyze faith. Without your active faith, there can be no substance, no evidence, of God’s leading; fear waits in situations like that to, at an opportune time, take over your leadership and dominate your decision-making.
Do as our Lord did. He kept moving. Follow His voice speaking on the inside. Finalize every decision and resolve to move forward, one step at a time. You are empowered to do as He tells you.
