We are to walk by faith, not by sight. Faith – the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Therefore, I will close my eyes, believe for God’s grace and mercy, and step forward in faith.
I know in my heart that God is good. He is a God of promises, of grace and mercy, of hope and love. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. I will trust In His Word. I will lean not on my own understanding. If He says walk, I will walk. If He says run, I will run. I will listen for His still small voice, that ever powerful, full of love, stronger than anything I’ve ever known, still small voice. I will acknowledge Him every step of the way. His Word says that He will make my own path straight. He will lead me to still waters, make me to lie down in green pastures. My time in this desert is almost done, when I close my eyes I see the Promised Land. The land flowing with milk and honey… I leave everything behind, nothing holds me back.
I am being refined in the fire. I close my eyes… pray for wisdom and strength. Offer up my first fruits. Step forward blindly, but not alone. The Lord is my refuge, my fortress, the God in whom I trust.
… And … step.
Father God. Thank you for your promises of grace and mercy. My first fruits are yours, and I give thanksgiving to you God for making all grace abound towards me, so that I am always having all sufficiency in all things. Thank you Jesus for coming so that we might have Truth, and that the Truth will set us free. I come boldly to the throne of grace and pray for wisdom Lord, lead me to where I should go. We are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses God, I lay aside everything that hinders me, leave sin behind, put on the new man, and run with patience the race that is set before me. Out of weakness I am made stronger. Out of the fire I am brought to a place of abundance. I pray this in Jesus’ name! Amen!
