This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 119:1 (MSG)
Today I am thinking about the need to stay the course.
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of talk around taking that leap of faith. First, we spent time encouraging ourselves just to take the actual leap. Next, we focused on what we might experience after we take that leap.
So as we close this segment on leaping into our miracles, there’s one more thing that I’ve learned for certain. Taking that leap of faith is a continual choice. There will be off ramps where we can choose to turn back; there will be times when we are presented with the choice, to stay or not stay the course.
Recently I talked about the early believers. I think they are perfect examples of those who continuously chose to make critical leaps of faith. Believers at that time were frequently persecuted. Imagine it. With each dose of bad news or loss of a loved one the early believers had to choose to stay the course, again and again.
If there’s one thing that inspires me to stay my course, it is the solid belief that I am on the path that God has chosen for me. In other words I’m not playing it safe. I’m not sitting on the side lines. Sure, there are times when I have more questions than answers, but that pales in comparison to being on a path that God has chosen for me.
I always keep in mind the words that my grandmother used to say, “God will never lead you where He will not feed you.”
Therefore, the Words that I use to inspire me are, “You’re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by God.” Psalms 119:1 (MSG)
Share this reflection with others as the early believers shared together the Good Word, so that they may also be inspired.
So today, stay your course, knowing that God won’t lead you where He won’t feed you.
