Stepping out in a new direction can be scary. Your mind tells you all that could go wrong and your fears scream, “Are you out of your mind? You can’t do this! Be reasonable!” You get to a point, though, where your passion overrides all the excuses for stalling, and you refuse to break your stride forward.
But still, you’re afraid.
Fear not, My Friend. God will take care of you! You don’t have to have all the answers to feel secure about where you’re going. It is enough that the One Who called you knows the way. Faith in Him is all the fuel you need to get to your destination. He promised to supply all your need according His resources, not yours. (Philippians 4:19) He promised you will never be alone in this (Hebrews 13:5b). He promised you will know what you need to know when you need to know it. (Isaiah 30:21) Has He ever let you down? Trust Him.
The journey will take courage, but you have what it takes because you have Him! Sometimes the most courageous thing you will do is wait when you want to rush ahead. Other times you will need to take an opportunity when you feel inadequate. Either way, grab His hand, swallow hard, and obey. You are doing something that matters. Go in confident assurance in the promise that when you take care of God’s business first, God will take care of you! (Matthew 6:33)
