I was having a conversation with someone this weekend, and something slipped out of my mouth that I have no clue why I said it. It wasn’t anything bad, but it was me opening myself up to a situation that I have been scared of. Luckily, the conversation went the way I was hoping. What I learned from it was amazing, though. I learned that because I was willing to take a step in a direction that I was unsure of, God had my back. God was right there all of the time, and because of my willingness to trust him, he protected me.
This happens so many times in my life, but too many times I fail to take that step of faith. Instead, I stay in my own little world where I feel safe. This is not what God wants though. He wants us to step into the unknown and trust that he will be there for us. How many of us are good at this? I don’t think I am, but now that it has recently happened to me, I am hoping that I can trust him more.
Trusting God is extremely difficult. It is so hard to trust in something that you cannot see, even if you have great faith. This week, take a step that you feel led to do and trust God to have your back.
