Everyday Step In
Trusting God over what I feel is always a challenge. “I feel afraid” is a real feeling but you can’t always trust your feelings. Joshua led the people of Israel to the Promised Land and even though it was flood season he told the priests to take the Ark of the Covenant and go right into the middle of the river. Because of their faith they trusted God and stepped in. Joshua 3:17 states; “All Israel passed through until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground.”
I would’ve first wanted to test the water with my big toe to see some evidence of God’s promise. I would’ve wanted to see the water go down before I stepped into the middle of the river. But often God provides no solution to our problems until we trust Him and move ahead with what we know we should do. Step forward into the unknown by God’s leading because it’s an opportunity for you to know Him better. Walk in faith and not your feelings...everyday.
