I felt the Lord say this morning, "IF I CALLED YOU...JUST STEP OUT, ALTHOUGH YOU DON'T YET KNOW THE OUTCOME. ONE SMALL STEP OF FAITH, REGARDLESS OF WHAT OTHERS THINK OR SAY, WILL BRING MY FAVOR! I AM ATTRACTED TO YOUR FAITH!"
If you look at my Facebook page or my website, you will notice that I changed my logo from a lovely pink to a fiery, feisty red/orange colour. This was an act of faith, based on something that I have not yet seen in the natural, but I know that the Lord has called me to in 2021.
God spoke to Noah about building an ark. People thought he was crazy, it was a HUGE job with little reward at first - and yet we see how that turned out.
Nehemiah felt called to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. He had pushback, he had outright opposition, he was probably exhausted and emotionally depleted at times - but the job was done, and what a wonderful outcome it was. With a sword in one hand and a building tool in the other, Nehemiah completed what the Lord had put in his heart.
The disciples dropped EVERYTHING to follow Jesus...a man they didn't even know. They just somehow knew God was calling them to do so.
The prophetess Anna (Luke 2), prayed and fasted and interceded day and night until she saw the Messiah arrive. She must have looked insane, an older widow not departing from the temple, but she had the privilege of praying INTO THE WORLD our beautiful Saviour.
I could go on and on.
The truth is.....If God called you - regardless of how ridiculous it may look in the natural or how much pushback in the spirit you feel - start to take steps of faith NOW. See this as an INVITATION to journey WITH the Holy Spirit into whatever it is that God has planned for you.
He has come to prosper you and NOT to harm you. To give you a HOPE and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11).
He wants to journey with YOU to reach the world. And you can trust that it's going to be a GOOD journey.
Get yourself ready. Be prepared. Start gathering wood for your ark. Design a new logo. Begin to intercede. Collect tools and help to build the walls. Put oil in your lamps. Follow Him wherever He says to go. EVERY SMALL ACT OF FAITH DRAWS HIM CLOSE.
He's CRAZY about you - don't forget that. You can trust Him every step of the way.
"I am not a man that I should lie, or the son of man that I should change my mind" - Numbers 23:19
Let's pray for wisdom, stay at His feet, and begin to step out in faith!
Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.
- Ephesians 3:20, TPT
