“For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV)
“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. Mark 11:22 (NIV)
Sometimes when we are praying about something all God wants is for us to simply say “okay” and take that leap of faith! This has been a recurring truth not just for me but people in my family as well. Last year when my brother was out of work we were all praying every day for doors to open. Of course we wanted them to open up somewhere close to where we all were though. Once my brother said “okay God, where ever you want me to go” and stepped out in faith our prayers were answered. Now there are several prayer requests that are on my heart, my dad needing a job, my brother-in-law needing a job, not to mention many other things that we are praying for as well. God has been continually laying on my heart the truth that I must step out in faith first and He will care for the rest. His plans are better than I could ever plan for myself. He knows what is best for me. All I need to do is trust Him, take a leap of faith and say “okay God” and whatever he puts before me will be more amazing than I had thought!
